Decorative glass, sometimes known as stained glass, is a thousand year old art form that was traditionally used in places of worship. Pieces of glass are cut and held together by lead or zinc strips to form a myriad of different patterns and designs. The panel is then secured in a rigid frame and thermally sealed between two pieces of safety-tempered glass. The result is a window pane that adds style and character to your doorway and depending on your preference, a great deal of privacy.

How it's made​

Each stained glass insert that we produce is hand made by a master stained glass artist, it all starts with a full scale drawing of the pattern and each glass section is labelled with the corresponding glass type, following the pattern lines each individual glass piece is hand cut to the exact required shape and size, when all pieces are ready the artist assembles all the individual cut glass pieces like a large puzzle assembling them with lead profiles surrounded by a ridged brass frame, this process is very intricate and the final size needs to be perfect, when the pattern is complete and assembled all connecting intersections get soldered together using a soldering iron and lead wire, this completes the art work. An electroplating process is used apply any desired finish on the leaded profiles. For exterior applications such as a door and window inserts we encase the stained glass art work between two panes of safety tempered glasses creating a sealed thermal unit that is very insulating it protects and encases the stained glass panel from the elements, we only use the highest quality glass insulating sealing products to ensure the longevity of the stained glass insert.
