Leaded door with fused glass elements

  The peacock door combines both leading and fusing techniques. The peacock head/crown were both fused as were the 'eyes' within its tail. These were then joined together using traditional leading techniques to create this unique 1 off door....and yes it will be coming with me if I ever move house!

Traditional Leaded Lights

 

               

The galleon is a restoration of a 1920's panel that is believed to have been part of a front door. Before I restored it several pieces of glass were damaged or missing and the lead was in a terrible state of repair and hanging off. By restoring this window the pieces has come back to life and can now adorn someone's home.

Copperfoiling designs

 

Copperfoiling is a technique where individual pieces of glass are covered in a copper foil tape round all of the edges, these are then soldered together to form the design.

This design was based on jellyfish legs, with a mackintosh inspired swirl, and made in colours to compliment a bathroom colour scheme. Clear water glass has also been used to project a rippled pattern onto the tiles.
