Modern and Contemporary Stained Glass
We design and make beautiful modern and contemporary stained glass windows and panels for a modern settings. Contemporary stained glass is ideal for putting in doors, windows, skylights and partitions.
We use the traditional techniques when making our windows but unlike traditional designs where the lead is hidden within the picture, in contemporary stained glass patterns the lead lines provide clean, elegant lines that are visible and compliment the contemporary design. The glass paint (grisaille) is used much more experimentally, and sometimes we print on the glass, using different techniques, to achieve stunning, layering effects and textures. We can also use rich decorative inserts within the modern glass designs to contrast with the clean lines.
We use mouth blown glass, where possible, this contains bubbles, streaks and imperfections which give a rich texture for transparent areas of the design.
This glass in the photo is mouth blown glass from the English Antique Glass company.
