A piece of stained glass can bring both colour and beauty into a home or workplace, and because it changes constantly with the daylight it is a continual joy to look at…….plus it is probably more affordable than you may think and because it is handmade it can always be designed to fit a budget.
If you would like to commission a stained glass window or panel then Brenda is happy to work to your design, or alternatively she can design a piece for you.
There are lots of ways to be inspired and lots of styles to be inspired by! From traditional Victorian or Edwardian to Contemporary or a picture window. The studio has plenty of books to help to find a starting point, once there is a clear idea of the sort of style you would like then Brenda will work with you to help decide on design, colour and texture.
At this point the customer is given an idea of the cost and a guide to timescale. A site visit is usually recommended.
Kingfisher Glass can also offer a fitting service for our windows if needed.
Information necessary to commission a panel.
Preferably to include rebates (that is the depth of wood that will hold the glass in place), not just the visible opening.
Horizontal or vertical.
Wood, plastic or metal.
Things to consider.
If the panels are to be fitted into a front door then it is advisable to have toughened glass fitted behind the stained glass, incase of break-in. This can be a sealed unit if there is space to incorporate one in the rebate of the door or a single sheet of 4mm.
Current regulations say that if there is any sort of glass below 800mm then it must be toughened, if in a door then it becomes 1500mm. As it is quite expensive to toughen stained glass then a sheet of clear toughened glass should be put behind the stained glass.
