How to commission Caroline's work...
Do you have a space that would be brightened up with a bespoke piece of stained glass? Light passing through the glass enhances any environment and provides the opportunity to bring design and style into your building.
With years of experience designing and creating glass I can help you with ideas and advice. I work from a purpose-built studio in Chobham, Surrey.
I provide a comprehensive design, construction, and instillation service. You may have definite ideas on the style and colour you would like, but equally you may be looking for inspiration - In either case I am here to help and guide you.
Once we have settled on an idea and rough price guide, I will visit your site to take measurements and discuss colour and style. Alternatively, you may prefer to come to my studio to look at the wonderful glass I have in stock and choose from the amazing colours to fit your design.
To start the process just simply send me an email.
In stained-glass painting, the term grisaille refers to an ornamental nonfigurative design painted in black line on colourless glass. Grisaille windows developed after a prohibition on the use of coloured glass was issued by the Cistercian Order in 1134.
The client brief here was to create a window that contained no colour. They also wanted a stag beetle on one of the leaves. It takes a while to see but the beetle is engraved in flash glass in the bottom left panel. The beatle does have a dichroic emerald shimmer that can be seen when the light reflects off this window.
This window is engrave, painted and then sealed and shimmers in the light. It also shows what is possible to achieve in a limited colour pallet. Contained in this window are green grey, blue grey and clear glass. All the glass used in this window is mouth blown English antique glass which gives by far the best quality of light and final finish.
There are many, many hours of painting and engraving in this window and it was created during the corona virus lockdown in 2020. It provided hours of therapeutic relief during that time.
Front Doors with Impact
Commissioned for a 1930s house this seven panel stained glass front door provides an immediate impact when you arrive. The client's brief was to design windows that would flow across the panels and provide a unique hand made feature.
When choosing the glass they went for green roundels to provide a pop of colour and different textures of clear glass to provide interest and privacy whilst allowing light to flood into the hallway.
The hand-made stained glass panels are encapsulated into triple glazed units and then fitted to the door frames. This provides insulation and, with toughened glass, additional peace of mind and security.
