Stained glass design
A personal touch at home
This customer wanted ‘a flower in stained glass’, for an upper window that connects house and garden. Follow the design steps I’m taking.
After consultation about the desired style, I make various sketches. I often design digitally, in this case by hand.
I discuss the possible glass types and colors. After approval, I work out the design to scale into a final version.
3. Working drawing
I then translate the sketch into a full-size working drawing.
4. Cutting glass
Using this working drawing, I cut all the loose pieces of glass.
5. New lead
I put all glass pieces in the lead…
…after which I solder everything.
The stained glass window is ready!
The mounted window, a new light in the house.
