stained glass for outdoor use .
old sections being re used in new panel design .
new design with original elements and new glass border .
Top two Images

These images show the existing two smaller Panels with their border taken off . They are then placed on a piece of paper to the size of the new leadlight . The lower Image shows the completed Window in situ , with new pieces added to make up the a complete stained glass Panel .

The Client had recently just moved Home , taking with them the original Toplight  Panels from their former Home , ( they had been replaced with UPCV Windows

 

Once stripped of the outer border , I then had to try to match up the Glass for the edging pieces to those of the two Panels. The red border was then taken from the original , with corner sections added to help balance the Design .

 

The Lead on the old Panels had to be filed down and cleaned at the point where it was to join the new lead , in order that the soldered joint run over both sections , and a secure bond be formed .

 

Overall the Client was happy with the work , she had a permanent reminder from her former Home . I was quite happy with the overall Panel , managing to integrate the two sections into one without looking too fragmented .

This undertaking involved a property with a large amount of Stained Glass already in their Home. So in this regard there already was a strong visual identity in terms of Glass designs .

 

The Image above shows the strong use of line and curved elements of the original leaded Glass .

 

Below is the final design which attempts to replicate the the free-flowing nature of the original , and incorporate some of the icons from the existing Glass in the Property .

Re-scaling

Some of the work we do involves having to change the scale and proportions and scale of a Design , for example we have had to take the design for a sidelight and reconfigure it for a Door . Generally sidelights are tall and slim and Door Panels are much wider . We have also had to transcribe a Toplight Design into a Door Panel .

 

Mostly the Design skill is to try and make the new work have balance , space and most importantly echo the proportions and colours of the Glass work we are trying to recreate .
