Good evening from all of us here at Coriander Stained Glass.  The summer is finally well under way and we hope you have all been enjoying the good weather with family and friends.

We have a couple of really special projects to share with you today; two Victorian and one bespoke piece of stained glass.

This first piece shows a stained glass for a set of internal partition doors.    It is the choice of texture and colour that make this piece come to life, with each choice of texture complimenting the piece next to it.  Internal feature doors such as this make a stunning focal point for your home and allow light to travel from one room to another, which can really open up and brighten your internal space.  By choosing clear, textured glass for the background not only does the focal point of the butterfly carry more impact, but the whole piece allows the maximum amount of light to pass through.

This first design of Victorian stained glass is specific to a small area of Wimbledon Park.
Here we have removed all three panels because the lead structures had worn out and were weak and bowing.   At our Wimbledon workshop we stripped the panels of lead and rebuilt them.  Three of the rose paintings were missing or broken so we have replaced them – Margaret, our in house artist, hand painted them at our Wimbledon shop.

These next photos show a beautiful set of newly created Victorian geometric stained glass, the design copying the original for the road when the house was built.  The colours of the top light tie in with the two vertical panels in the main door, and typical features of the era can easily be identified.  With the pastel geometric background and ruby red border,this piece is undeniably Victorian.
