Featuring in London Open House...

I recently completed a lovely commission for a house in Brockley. The 2 stained glass door panels are split into 6 scenes and divided diagonally. The panels take inspiration from the locality; the diagonals reflecting the hilly nature of Brockley, the London skyline at the tops are views you might see from various Brockley parks, the Crystal Palace with Sphinx is set in parkland and below this a barge brings sand for cement reflecting both a love of the river and the fact that the customers have built their house in it's entirety. On the other panel is St Peters Church in Brockley and below this a lifeboat speeds across the Thames.This stunning house with it's mix of modern and traditional build is open as part of the London Open House 2016 and also features on the website of the architects Gruff Limited.

The handmade streaky glass in St Peters Church windows originally came from a pharmacy sign - see  example below. The 'true pink' streaky colour is one of the most expensive to produce, containing gold.
