Traditional leaded lights are made by hand-cutting glass sections, and fitting together with ’H’ shaped lead came. The panel is soldered and "rubbed in" with a lead based cement to make the panel strong and weather proof. Stained glass goes a step further with the introduction of beautiful hand painted, kiln fired elements.
The methods we use have changed little in hundreds of years and create stunning panels that will last a lifetime.
TRADITIONAL PAINTED BIRD ROUNDEL
A glass painted bird roundel, with multiple fires in our gas kiln, to achieve the final result which is then included within the final window.
The Dining hall windows were in need of complete remaking and
conservation. These windows are originally from the Great hall of London and rehoused 100 years ago at the school, the panels needed to be completely restored.
