When we begin our journey in a window design commission, we want to understand you and your needs deeply. From then on we work closely with you until you are happy with the design.
We offer an initial consultation to discuss your creative vision. This may be remote or in person.
We offer you the opportunity to explore our glass samples, so you can imagine colour and texture in your design.
We will provide you with a coloured sketch reflecting your vision discussed in our initial meetings. This can be edited and changed to your liking.
We will present to you a full scale drawing of your designed window.
Perth Prison Religious Stained Glass Windows
We received a brief from Perth prison, they requested some sketches of stained glass designs which would be used in the prison chapel. The chapel is used for meetings and group work. This space serves prisoners as a calm place, so very different from the rest of the jail. If a man should come into this space troubled and struggling, he should leave with a sense of peace and quietness.
The design consists of three parts in each panel. The lower portion represents our path through life, which is never direct or straight, which is represented by the wandering lead lines running across each panel. The heavier straight lines running from top to bottom represent the incidents that cross our path through our lives and the decisions we must take to continue whether those be good or bad. The next portion above represents the rich and varied life we all strive to achieve, as natural light shines through this section the faith centre will be flooded with rich and varied colour, showing that this can be shared by all. Finally we come to the upper section which is devoid of any disruption representing the tranquillity and peace of heaven which we all wish to attain, but can only be attained by passing through the second section which is rich varied, and, most importantly is a life of sharing and giving.
