Adding A Touch Of Stained Class To Your Windows And Doors

Posted on: 23rd June, 2023

When you’re looking to replace the existing windows or doors in your home for the timeless elegance of traditionally handcrafted windows, you know they’ll already possess a charm of their own. And if you’re looking for that inspirational impact of individuality – something truly unique that reflects your personality – then adding a vibrant, intricate, and bespoke stained glass design will elevate your windows to new heights, adding that special touch you’ve been looking for.

Artisan skill for a truly personal touch

When we undertake any traditionally handcrafted window project, the final pieces are a testament to the artistry and dedication of our skilled team, who create each window or door to perfection. And while they showcase the beauty of craftsmanship, highlighting the detail and precision that go into them, even the most exquisite windows might lack a personal touch that can truly set them apart.

The team at NMJ always goes above and beyond with every window or door we craft. But while each of our windows and doors is sent to our trusted glazing suppliers to have double glazing installed in a choice of glass designs and textures, we often get asked about adding custom stained glass designs to them for that personal touch.

While creating stained glass is an artisan skill, we can now answer our client’s questions about adding it to their window designs. All thanks to our contact with an incredibly talented artisan of original stained glass windows made precisely to your size and specification.

Creating a stained glass masterpiece

Local stained and leaded glass specialist Sarah Lace owns and operates her successful business, Sarah Lace Designs. Based right here in Tavistock, Sarah uses traditional skills and heritage techniques to create beautiful, original, and handmade stained glass designs commissioned to your own unique requirement. 

Whatever design you’re looking for, whether it’s a bold and vibrant pattern, an intricate nature-inspired decoration, a modern abstract design, or something more symbolic, Sarah will work closely with you to talk through ideas and inspiration. And if there are limitations in terms of size for your required piece, Sarah will discuss these with you, and her knowledge and skill will ensure the very best finish.

Then it’s down to Sarah to work her magic. She’ll carefully select an exquisite range of glass types, colours, and textures, allowing her to capture the essence of your vision and create a stained glass masterpiece that perfectly complements you and your new windows.

Once complete, we’ll work with our glazing partners to either encapsulate it into a double-glazed unit or find the perfect glazing process to meet your desired finish. When the final installation is in your home, you’ll experience the warm glow of sunlight filtering through the patterns, casting a kaleidoscope of colours into your living space.
