This is our latest completed church restoration at st stephens church in twickenham. This beautiful stained glass window received substantial damage, at our wimbledon studio we striped the panel of its lead structure, around 20% of the painted glass was broken, so in the traditional way way we copied the broken fired paintings and completely rebuilt the lead light structure.

This week we would like to show you a beautiful hand painted stained glass front entrance on the Heaver Estate, London SW17, where we have copied the traditional Victorian geometric design from when the house was built. The side lights show a traditional flowing leaf painted pattern, the six door panels are traditionally painted birds of the clients choice.

Here at Coriander Stained Glass we’ve been keeping busy with a number of projects, a few of which we are going to share with you today.

Edwardian Stained Glass

This is an internal door in a beautiful Edwardian home in Long Ditton, Surrey . The original lead structure over the decades had weakened and there is only one way of resolving this.  The lead light must be taken apart and the lead structure replaced, which is what we did with all twelve of these panels.   This process also cleans the glass very effectively so that it shines and glistens.  This piece works particularly well for an internal door because of its’ placement within the home, you can see in the photograph that it is in a place that allows natural light to pass through it and creates a wonderful transition between rooms.

Victorian Stained Glass

This next set of pictures shows a beautiful set of Victorian geometric stained glass we have recently fitted in a home in Wimbledon, South West London. Features typical of the era include the ruby red border, the geometric shapes, and the pastel shades used for the background glass.

Stained glass completely transforms the entrance of a home, creating an impressive, decorative main character feature and opens up what is otherwise usually a quite dull space.

If you’re looking for inspiration for a piece of stained glass for your own home, there are lots of beautiful examples to be found in our stained glass portfolio.  You can opt for a design that is traditional and in keeping with the properties in your area, or we can design you something completely bespoke from a drawing or your favourite picture.

Don’t forget you can also keep up to date with all our latest news on Facebook and Twitter.

 

From all of us here at Coriander Stained Glass we hope you’ve been enjoying the warmer weather and like us, we’re sure you’re hoping it’s here to stay!

Today we’d like to share with you some of our latest Edwardian projects, with a little insight in to the era and its’ defining features.

This first project was for an Edwardian home in South London.  The stained glass has been hand made piece by piece in our workshop, copying the original design found in the area.

Here you can see typical features of the period, such as the clear, textured glass in for the background and the flowing leaf design which is in a coloured, textured glass.  Getting the correct combination of textures is key for Edwardian Stained Glass and in this piece it ties the different areas of the design together beautifully.

This next Edwardian piece features a lovely bold focal point of the blue/lilac flowers, with the little hand painted gems adding a brighter pop of colour to the centre of the flowers.  Again, texture plays a key part in this piece, with the contrast between the textured clear background and the smoother texture of the flower petals.

The next two pieces are more varied in colour.  The first is a move away from the more commonly used ruby red border to this wonderful sea blue, with the tulip-like flowers on both the central and outer panels.

This second piece uses a fantastic combination of colour and detail, with the diamonds and gems creating a border around the floral focal point.

If you are thinking of a stained glass window for your own home we hope that we have given you some food for thought, as these are just a few examples of Edwardian Stained Glass, if you’d like to see more please take a look at our stained glass portfolio.

Check back later in the week when we’ll be sharing some of our Victorian Stained Glass pieces.

We can’t believe it’s June already here at Coriander Stained Glass, but we’ve been busy working hard on some new projects and we’d like to share some more with you today.

Victorian Stained Glass in Ealing (1)

This beautiful set of stained glass leaded lights were recently made and fitted in a home in Ealing, London.

A copy of an original set in a neighbours house as far as the design is concerned, but as with everything we make the glass colours and textures are chosen by the client to keep the piece personal

There are, however, traditional colour combinations used for different design types that we recommend throughout the process.

[/wpcol_1quarter_end]

As you can see from these photographs the sidelights are in painted glass, the colours are completely traditional mute yellow, amber and brown/black with the traditional ruby red border.  Our in house artist, Margaret, lovingly hand paints each piece of glass from either her own sketches or photographs produced by our clients.  The painted columns in this piece really add a touch of elegance to what is otherwise a quite traditional Victorian piece.

The 4 central windows also have the traditional border to bring the piece together, with the bold geometric pattern over a background of pastel shades.  The little round gems are hand painted and can therefore be created to match perfectly with the other features in the window.

We have lots of beautiful examples in our stained glass portfolio if you are thinking of a stained glass window for your own home, with some stunning glass painted by Margaret in our hand painted glass designs gallery.

Well that’s it from us for today, but we have plenty more projects to share with you in the coming weeks so be sure to check back soon or keep up to date via Facebook or Twitter.
