Often we are asked if we do custom work for businesses, homes or out-door spaces. The answer is– we do. Whatever your space, we are able to craft windows for it. Often we are commissioned windows to provide privacy, elegance, or remembrance. We often develop panels and medallions to accent living space. We hand-craft traditional, neo-traditional and contemporary windows here in our studio at very competitive prices.
Our staff here is eager to listen and learn about your needs and ideas so that we are able to work with you to design a piece that you will be happy with to help you enjoy the process of acquiring a stained glass window for your home, business or religious space.
Consultation: The first step after the initial contact is to thoroughly and accurately assess the requirements of the project. Giving us pictures of the space, or having us come to the space itself to evaluate the light, style, setting and the mood of the space is valuable, if not essential. Usually an exchange of ideas will occur, measurements and guided photos taken, and then we discuss the budget and timeline for the project. The pricing of the project can only be done once the scope of the project is clear. At this point, we request a 20% deposit to begin the project.
Design: With the notes and the inspiration from the initial consultation, usually a few preliminary sketches are drafted. The success of any custom design is reliant on good communication between the client and the artist. Once the design and scope of the project has been decided and approved, work can begin!
Production: The glass is chosen and manipulated as needed, full scale drawings, “cartoons”, are used to help piece the glass together, and finally the glass is assembled with came and/or solder and framed.
Installation: Framing of autonomous panels can be done using a variety of materials (woods, metals) and hung in the desired space. If the glass panel is to be fit in an existing opening, we are able to travel to you to safely and professionally install them ourselves. Otherwise, we are able to send them to you or have you pick them up, but this provides difficulties as we are not able to guarantee that the windows will arrive in one piece. Installation and framing options will be discussed during the initial consultation.
Pricing Stained and Leaded Glass
We are able to estimate our commissioned windows usually by square foot and by style. We vary in price, but about $250.00 per square foot is common. Extra work like traveling to inspect locations or installing windows are not included in this base price. Once we have given an estimate for the custom work, we request a deposit of 20% to get the project started.
Pricing of custom stained glass is a combination of labour and material cost. Our clients often ask how much for a window of a specific size, however, size is only one element we factor in when pricing. Other variables could include the cost of the glass itself or any glass manipulation and enhancing that we perform here at our studio.
A Lasting Work of Art
Thoughtfully using our design process, fused, textured, and coloured glass, and premium lead came for structural integrity ensures that each window will last for generations if cared for properly.
We are currently working on a Design Centre in our Studio Store. At this centre you will be able to peruse our own design concepts, ideas and books, the glass textures and colours available at our studio, and staff available to help if you need.
