How we work

From idea to finished piece

Creating artistic stained glass is a fascinating process:

  • The client’s tastes and ideas play a crucial role at the beginning of the design process.
    The first step in producing an artistic glass window is the sketch: it must enable the client to visualise the final piece.
    A selection of different sketches and colour solutions are produced that will allow the client find the one he/she likes most. mariabruni-0472
  • The subject and artistic effects chosen by the client determine the techniques and materials used, and thus form an integral part of the project.
    The stained glass window can be a glass mosaic composed entirely or partially of specially painted and fired glass pieces.
    The sketch is turned into a life-sized preparatory drawing made up of lines that will be used to created templates.
  • Preparatory drawings
  • The templates are used when cutting the glass shapes. Each piece will have its own colour and if necessary be painted.
  • The glass mosaic is then assembled on a work surface inside the lead came. The lead came is then soldered and grouted to hold the pieces together firmly.33
  • The final stained glass design can if required be fitted into a metal frame or placed between protective glass walls.
  • Delivery and assembly by our skilled workers completes the work.
