Here at Coriander Stained Glass we are delighted to share with you pictures from the opening ceremony of the Children’s Memorial Garden at the South West Middlesex Crematorium that took place yesterday, Saturday 8th December 2012.

The beautiful garden features our “Peter Pan” window and soon we will be uploading the third and final installation of our Peter Pan series of videos over the coming days.

First of all, some pictures from yesterday’s opening ceremony.

We’ve still been busy in the run up to Christmas, and we are currently working on several projects.

Glass Painting

In this picture you can see our glass painter Margaret is producing some traditional designs for a front door in Bletchingley, Surrey.

Decorative Stained Glass

Here one of our lead light makers is putting together some stained glass to be used as decorative secondary glazing in a Kensington appartment.

That’s it for today but check back next week for the final installment of the Peter Pan videos, and an Edwardian restoration project we have been working on, too.

Here at Coriander Stained Glass we are very excited to announce that the Peter Pan window is finally in!  The Children’s Memorial Garden at the South West Middlesex Crematorium has not yet been officially opened but the sun was shining yesterday when we were there for the installation.

We’ve a few shots to give you an idea of the look of this beautiful little garden, but we won’t reveal a full size image of the final Peter Pan window until we have a snippet of the third and final video to show you along side it.

Peter Pan Stained Glass Window

The window is backed by two layers of safety glass.  This is the window as seen from the outside of the garden.  The beautiful quotes on the walls were painted by Brush Strokes and are quotes from the children’s novel, Peter Pan.

Inside the garden are more quotes and star plaques that families can sponsor to remember a loved one.

There’s lots of stunning little details on the finished window, like this little squirrel, and these two little children, admiring the statue of Peter Pan.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this sneak preview and look out for the short video we will uploading over the next few days – it will be a preview of the third and final video in our Peter Pan video series and as well as the installation will also document the opening ceremony.  We will upload a photo of the completed window, which will become part of our Other Stained Glass Designs gallery.
