Coriander Stained Glass – Kingfisher & Owl

 

A serene landscape, capturing the kingfisher poised in flight. The subtle background landscape hues of blue and greens present the saturated colours of the kingfisher. A pleasant monocentrically composed panel.

 

A traditionally hand-painted stained glass leadlight, featuring an owl perched on oak branch. The design is based on a Victorian geometric, presenting straight lines and subtle backgrounds.

Coriander Stained Glass – The White Bear

 

An elegant design created for a client in Essex. The heavily textured white glass describe the ice landscape, surrounded by the wispy blue sea, accentuating the outline of the polar bear. A handsome and attractive design.

Coriander Stained Glass – Peacock Panels

 

An exciting and bold design made and fitted for a Victorian home front door in Dulwich. This complex design is visually striking, with the prominent blue colours accentuated by solid red and wispy opal glass, presented on a background of textured clear.

We’ve been busy here at Coriander Stained Glass working on a number of restoration projects.  We’d like to share with you these projects for Edwardian and Victorian themed pieces.

Edwardian Front Entrance – SW London

The first stage is to remove the broken glass (it was not the original) from the far panels.

We have made the new panels fitted in this picture.  The design copies the original that is still in the neighbouring home, the glass colour used is a mixture of old and new, with the usual red border distinctive of this era, replaced with midnight blue and in the flower petals grape water glass.  The background, leaf and bud colours replicate the original, a good mix of old and new that works beautifully.

This picture shows whole new front entrance created from scratch for an Edwardian home in SW19.  We have created the stained glass which is based on a local design.

Victorian Restoration Projects

Coriander Stained Glass Victorian window

This is one of two Victorian geometric style top lights delivered to a client in Oxford.  The background is a random placement of four pale shades in antique cathedral with the standard ruby red border providing a strong frame.

Coriander Stained Glass Victorian Geometric

The above picture shows a completely new Victorian Geometric patterned stained glass front entrance based on the original design for the road in SW19 that we have recently made and installed.

Coriander Stained Glass Victorian painted panel

This next picture shows a rebuilt Victorian painted panel.  We have stripped this roundel of lead and rebuilt it into a new lead light.  We have only replaced the red border and one broken painted border pane.

We’ve been busy at Coriander Stained Glass working on a variety of projects.

These are some template drawings we’ve been working on for a lead light installation in Putney.

These are for a front door but would also look great in a stairway or hallway.  Lead lights in a stairway or hallway are a fantastic way of adding interest to an otherwise plain stairway or room in your home.  Please visit our gallery pages for ideas and inspiration.

Here you can see the finishing touches being made to the completed lead light in a front entrance in Putney.

The completed project can be seen in our Edwardian Gallery pages.
