Next 2 windows of my current commission, the transom light.

This weekend I have been working on window 5 and 6 of my current commission, comprising 2 46.5 cm long curved windows forming a semi circle. The client had a strong idea of what she wanted, so the challenge for me has been fitting all of that into a small window! There has had to be a little compromise and a couple of the details of the piece (the client would have liked a petal and circle motif running through the sunburst) have had to be sacrificed for the good of the design. The lettering is complicated, but quite small and would get lost in any busier a design. Also, the space was just too limited to complicate the design any further. The below photos document the cutting, leading and cementing of these 2 panels. Just one more to go!

    Wow, this one looks really intricate, especially the small pieces that make the letters up. Looking forward to seeing the finished pieces I bet they’ll look stunning. x
