You can choose a design from my library of source books, or I can base the design on your own ideas, photos, sketches or to complement any stained glass you may already have. I will then provide you with a selection of designs drawn to scale for your perusal. (Please note that I require a small deposit - usually £80 before providing any drawings. Once you are happy with the design, you can select the glass you would like from my selection of glass samples. I then ask for a deposit representing 30% of the total cost of designing and supplying the glass to secure the commission, with the balance due on delivery of the glass.
How much will it cost?
Prices vary according to the complexity of the design, the glass used, the size and whether there are any other techniques required such as hand painting, sandblasting etc. To give you an idea, prices for leaded lights are between £90-£120 per square foot. Most of the items in the Gallery are priced to help give you a further idea. Please note that these prices do not include the cost of fitting, but I provide a full quotation for approval before any work is started.
I arrange fitting of the stained glass and other options including fitting extra laminate glass either inside or outside of the stained glass to offer protection and security. This is not a double glazed unit, and some people do ask whether stained glass can be fitted within a double glazed unit. This is an option provided the rebate of the door is deep enough (at least 35 mm). However, I am reluctant to recommend this for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the stained glass is sandwiched between plain glass - this does spoil the look of the stained glass, which is usually textured. Secondly, double glazed units are only guaranteed for 15-20 years - when the double glazed units need replacing the stained glass can get damaged in the process. Another option, if you want double glazing and provided your rebate is deep enough, is to have separate double glazed units fitted either in front or behind the stained glass panels.
