We’ve been busy here at Coriander Stained Glass completing and installing our latest projects.  Be sure to check back soon for our latest pictures, including the completed job for the beautiful hand painted pieces we posted about earlier this month.

We’ll also be filming the open ceremony of the Children’s Memorial Garden at West Middlesex Cemetery in the coming weeks, which will complete our series of videos on the Peter Pan project.

We’ve been keeping an eye out on the latest art exhibitions showing in London, and sadly the Royal Collection’s da Vinci exhibition is only showing for one more week.   If you don’t have time to make a visit, we’ve got our eye on another great exhibition, at the Tate Britain.

The exhibition “Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde” is showing until 13th January 2013.

The Pre-Raphaelites were considered to be the first avant-garde movement in art, “combining rebellion, beauty, scientific precision and imaginative grandeur.”  The exhibition shows 150 works in a variety of media, with both well known works alongside rarely seen masterpieces.

If you’re looking for inspiration for a Victorian lead light, this exhibition is a great place to find it.

Our in house artist, Margaret, can lovingly recreate paintings from any work of your choice, and if you’re interested in all things Victorian, why not take a look at our Victorian gallery for ideas and inspiration on traditional Victorian lead lights.
