Customer reuse ideas

I can’t explain why some people do this …

… but I hope you enjoy looking at what customers have done with salvaged leaded lights I have rescued and sent to them.


I sent this top half of a door to Hamidah in Torquay…

Here’s it’s new home…

I’m fascinated with the American phenomena of the wrap around porch. In little England this is less common and far less likely that we would sit out on a rocking chair overlooking a “yard”. Here Laura has truly blended Anglo/American architecture.


Here’s a pair I sent to Stephen in North Ayrshire, Scotland…
… he fitted into an internal wall partition (A739a).

“Hi Richard,
Probably 4 years ago I came over and bought some glass from you for our little garden house. I knew I would be a long time sending you pictures I promised.
The roof is a green roof, those 6 pack plugs which the garden centre plants come in, filled with compost, fitted into the roof frame and covered in gravel once planted, in it’s 3rd year. More or less put the roof on and filled the sides afterwards.

Anyway, now finished, a lovely space and a great use for windows.
Best wishes for your continued success and many thanks for providing the raw materials for our ‘Glass House’ great for having coffee in the fresh air on especially on colder days.” Graham – Oxfordshire.

Here’s set R931 which I sent to Tara in Virginia, USA …

… and here’s what she did!

What I like about the above photo is the contrast between new and old. Carla has mounted the window sashes exactly as I sent them – she has not repainted the frames. She also chose an art deco design which I think suits the linear arrangement of everything in the room.

  1. Loved seeing all the ideas

  2. Fantastically inspiring, as Richard suggests!

  3. Wow, your salvaged glass pieces are extraordinary beautiful. I can’ wait until I received the piece I ordered this evening. I know exactly where I would like to place it. Love the pics of all the pieces people have found to display them. Love the history of the pieces that have been rescued and where the came from.

  4. I really love seeing what ideas people have and how they have used their beautiful Stained Glass! I recently sold my favorite piece of stained glass from a stable outside of Paris. It was a present from an old boyfriend and I was getting married to someone else. Now, years later I so regret my selling it. It was a one of a kind large Horse that resembled my horse of years ago. Now I am without it and divorced. I bought a piece from you Richard and I am hoping to buy many more to help fill the hole in my heart of the lost Horse. I will send a pic of the piece when I put it up and I thank you for helping me start to fill that hole and collect the items that I truly love. Thanks, Sharon Stratford

  5. What ingenuity everyone has in displaying these beautiful and priceless art pieces! Such inspiring ways to make everything old, new again! I will always treasure mine!💜

  6. […] Richard’s customers do with the glass they purchase from him, in the images he posts on his Customer reuse ideas page, but have only now had the opportunity to be shown round a customer’s home – one […]
