Stained Glass Design & Building
The skill of creating beautiful windows with stained glass is still very much alive today.
We will work with you to create your own stained glass feature for your home or workplace. Based in Tauranga, we mostly work in the greater Bay of Plenty area but can cover anywhere in the North Island by arrangement.
Historically, coloured glass was difficult and expensive to produce, meaning stained glass windows and art were reserved for the wealthiest of individuals and institutions. Luckily modern manufacturing makes coloured glass incredibly affordable, so now everyone can enjoy the beauty of stained glass in their home or workplace.
Popular with people wanting to make a statement with their home or businesses wishing to add extra life to dull buildings; stained glass is still a popular way of adding style to or energising spaces.
Whether you already have an idea or need a little inspiration, we can help create the perfect stained glass design to suit your taste and location.
All our leadlight designs are manufactured in-house by our talented and experienced craftspeople to an incredibly high standard. When you are thinking of stained glass, talk to the professionals.
Leadlight Repairs & Restoration
We are specialists in Leadlight Repairs. If you have a leadlight that needs restoring, repairing or resizing for double glazing, get in touch.
Learn to create with Stained Glass
