Can I ask you to create a design from my own ideas?

Can I see a “mock up” of my design before you manufacture it?
Yes, if we are creating a custom design we would place a “proof” of your glass design onto the Client Pages section of the website so you can approve before manufacture.

Can you supply my Decorative Glass as a double glazed sealed unit?
Yes, most of the glass we create is made into sealed units for double glazing. We can also supply onto “K” glass single, toughened single and sometimes onto frosted glass single glass.

Can you visit my home or business to survey the job before manufacture?
Our Executive Service is the perfect choice for larger jobs where a site survey would be beneficial. Please contact the studio for pricing.

Do you manufacture the old style leaded lite stained glass?
No we don’t, unfortunately we have seen requests for traditional leaded lights fall dramatically over the years so we no longer offer this service.

Can I have my own design manufactured in bevelled glass?
Yes, we can create bevelled clusters from your own design but it would take a few months extra. We have a large catalogue of standard bevelled glass clusters but we can also create bevelled glass clusters from your own ideas.
