The process of hand painting glass is often seen in churches, where the figurative details of Saints and various biblical scenes are depicted with a realism enabled only by the hand painting process. The term stained glass truly relates to the hand painting, and staining, process, and it is for this reason that the true art of stained glass, when used in a domestic setting, was reserved only for the best homes. At Artisan (genuinestainedglass.com) we design and make leaded panels that can include hand painted detail for both private and trade clients. The kiln firing method we employ is exactly the same as original craftsmen and women have used for hundreds of years, and is a permanent and traditional way to add fine detail to stained glass windows.

The hand painted stained glass service we offer.

Below are examples of the hand painted stained glass service we at Artisan offer to both public and trade clients. The face of the figure of Ceres, goddess of agriculture was broken into many pieces and so we hand painted a new face on matching glass using exactly the same process and skills as the original artists. This included three firings in a kiln to make the paint permanent. The pieces were then inserted into the leaded window and sealed to restore it to its original glory. Trade client.

Windows that belong in a home

At Artisan, when we design and make new stained glass, we take great care to match colours textures and design to be as authentic as possible to the era in which the building was designed. Twenty eight years experience of both making and restoring traditional leaded windows means we produce panels that belong in an environment rather than dominate. The skills and techniques employed are exactly the same skills used to produced the stained glass in our cathedrals and churches for hundreds of years. We do not produce any works that involve modern imitation methods (as often seen on some plastic conservatories) whatsoever.
