Full length Stained Glass windows

Friday I installed these two 2 metre long panels into their new home at a fabulous new build family home in the lovely village of Cheriton Bishop, Devon. The customers have recently moved into the oak frame house and it really takes the best from heritage timbers and materials and modern conveniences. Its great to get them in their final resting place, I started designing them at the end of 2013, so they have taken a while to produce!

The windows brief was simple, to transform the boring plain glass windows either side of the wooden front door into a proper feature; whilst still allowing light into the house and using a naturalistic landscape theme that followed from one panel to the next. They wanted grasses and a tree and a few cows (as he was a dairy farmer). The really tricky part of this brief was the width of the panel compared to the height almost 2 metres by 26 cm and I decided that a more Japanese approach to landscape was needed and the panels journey from the North Devon Coast at the top of the windows, through the fields and hills to a tree by a river. For strength the panel is split into 3 reinforced sections and I am really pleased with the way the landscape flows across from one side to the other (even though there is a door in between).

I have used kiln fired glass enamels and acid etching to paint all the details and the glass used is a mixture of mouth blown antique glass and Spectrum art glass.
