Steph and Richard’s window

I have just installed a window in Steph and Richard’s front door in Exeter. This is a 1930’s house and although I have created a contemporary design the colours and shapes echo the art decco stylings of the original windows. This project has been a real challenge as they have UPVC windows throughout their house. In the end we drilled into the UPVC and screwed the window into the white window surround. This has been very effective and has allowed them to have a traditional stained glass window without loosing their UPVC window.

This method of installing stained glass seems to be a useful avenue for those who want a stained glass window but (as with so many houses) have UPVC thoughout and allows you to return some character and craftmanship to your house.

I am a stained glass artist working in Exeter and a busy mum of 2; trying to carve a path through the tide of washing and children's toys that stands between me and making beautiful things.
