2013 is really flying by and we’re very happy to announce we have been busy here at Coriander Stained Glass over the past few weeks, we’ve a few projects to share with you today.

First of all, we are pleased to share with you the final pictures of the fully repaired and restored window for St Stephen’s Church, Twickenham.

The second project we’d like to share with you is this beautiful hand painted Kingfisher window for a home in Newmarket.  Here you can see Margaret, our in house artist, lovingly painting the Kingfisher onto the glass prior to placing it in the kiln.

If you have a particular picture that you would love to have created into a stained glass window, or are looking for ideas and inspiration, please visit our stained glass portfolio pages, where you can see more of Margaret’s beautiful creations.

Environnement Wildlife Photography Exhibition

If you like the Kingfisher picture, and would like some inspiration for your own window, the Natural History Museum is hosting the Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition until March this year.  It’s an annual exhibition that “provides a spotlight on the rarely seen wonders of the natural world”.  There are 100 winning images on show selected from thousands of entries.

The Natural History Museum website has the winning photos online, as well as entries from all categories including Young Awards – under 10’s to age 17, Adult, and Special Awards.  Over all, we’d say it’s a must see for animal lovers and we hope we get chance to go before the exhibition ends!

Well that’s it from us for today but check back later in the week when we will be writing about some Edwardian and Victorian projects we’ve completed recently.  You can also keep up to date with what we are doing on Facebook & Twitter.
