My client commissioned me to replace a broken window in the entry door of her house
between the hall and the corridor
This door then went through a thorough transformation.
The house itself contains many Edwardian stained glass windows and doors.
I used one of the door- windows as an inspiration to fit in with the style.
I also received artistic freedom to rejuvenate the window according to my vision.
I removed the paint and a beautiful old pine-door appeared.
The glass was held in a rebate. This meant that the new window needed to be made in situ.
The delicate glass used for the flowers and leaves is mouth-blown ‘English antique glass’.
The surrounding glass is made out of the tender pastels of ‘English muffled glass'.
We enjoyed a collaborative process with Rosa to create this beautiful new window (see pic) for an internal door. Rosa visited the house to see the existing stained glass windows and developed a design that echoed the traditional designs in the original glass expressed through her own contemporary style. The resulting window is a piece of original art in itself – our contribution to the house’ (K.S)
The finishing touch
Instead of straight reinforcements, take note of the invisible way in which the carpenter and I attached and inserted the reinforcements (pic 6)…I am quite proud of that having worked out so well.
