Rainbow Glass Studio can discuss a creative way to incorporate a new contemporary stained-glass window within a building. This window would be designed to suit your specific requirements and its chosen surroundings.
Since opening Rainbow Glass studio LTD in 2001, I now enjoy having the freedom to create my own ideas and designs in stained glass and have installed 45 commissions throughout Scotland. I feel that the combination of glass and light with addition of tone from glass painting and acid etching has unlimited potential to create unique and uplifting art. This begins with an original and creative design. It is important for me to listen to the client and show my portfolio. We discuss ideas with the client and build a trustful relationship in order to achieve a successful project. During the creation process, I review the location and architecture of the building, interior and quality of light within its chosen surroundings. Taking into consideration all of this information, I create a unique watercolour design, drawn to scale. This is then presented to the client for approval. Once the design has been approved, the stained glass is carefully hand crafted then installed. A commission is a very personal experience and communication throughout the project allows the client to follow the development of the work. I welcome studio visits and the client can arrange to view the work in-progress. Depending on the design, it normally takes between 9-12 months to complete a stained-glass commission from design through to approval, manufacture and finally installation.
