We use a wide range of stained glass techniques, such as painting, staining and kiln firing; others we have adapted and re-invented to achieve a more contemporary style: etching, sandblasting, kiln forming and glass mosaic.
The construction methods we use are mainly traditional leading, and occasionally the copper foiling technique. Every now and then we break from tradition & use less conventional methods.
