I was recently interviewed by an American podcast, True Tales from Old Houses, where I tell the story of how I got into this business of dealing in old window glass. I also explain the difference between British and American stained glass. If you have been thinking of buying from me you might be interested to listen to get to know me. I appear 13 minutes into the episode. https://www.truetalesfromoldhouses.com/richard-to-the-stained-glass-rescue/
The podcast series is a general fountain of knowledge/discussion for anyone interested in the history and preservation of old houses.
I have a desire to “flag” this design this weekend! It has sold but I can supply it made new to your required size using my bespoke service. This was made in size of 12″ x 15 3/4″ (303mm x 401mm). The following photos demonstrate the craft involved in making such a piece.
Stage 1 – design.
The flag on the right is the image we used for the basis of design. The left image is the final technical drawing. We chose a crumpled flag as it suits the small size but yours could be more unravelled or completely linear.
Stage 2 – production – acid etched, handpainted and kiln fired.
Each star is etched.
Suncatcher or window panel?
It can have hooks soldered to the top for hanging but these can be snapped off for fitting into a window sash frame.
