Apple Stained Glass Co is a small, dedicated, studio with a passion for high quality, traditional and contemporary stained glass. I have one simple goal - to bring colour into your world through the beauty of stained glass. I achieve this by managing the entire process; from the initial consultancy right through the design and build process and, if required, the installation.
Each step is controlled by me and my associates. I only use the highest quality materials and time-tested traditional craftsmanship. All flavoured with a touch of classic, yet contemporary design.
The last few years have seen a resurgence of interest in traditional craftsmanship inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Driven by the likes of William Morris and Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the Arts and Crafts movement saw stained glass move away from being the sole preserve of civil and religious buildings, to play a key part in domestic and industrial settings. These inspirational designs were soon adopted by architects who integrated them into many late Victorian and Edwardian houses. The desire for contemporary design provided much of the impetus that created the Art Nouveau and Art Deco eras of design. And that desire continues to this day, with stained glass becoming a regular aspect of creative domestic architecture.
Within these web pages you will find a wide range of products and services - from sundials to mirrors, windows to transoms, repairs to commissions. All designed, hand-crafted and finished in my own studios.
I've been designing, building and installing stained glass for nearly ten years. From large, multi-panelled Victorian vestibule windows, to smaller one-off door transoms; Art Deco and bespoke mirrors and even repairs and refurbishment. In fact, I can work with anything that is stained glass - almost any size - nothing too big - nothing too small.
I am very down-to-earth and totally customer focussed; so if you can think of it, I will do all I can to realise your ideas in glass.
Most of the stained glass projects I've designed and delivered are located in the central / southern / eastern regions of the UK. Typically, my stained glass pieces can be found throughout the following areas:
Milton Keynes, Bletchley, Northampton, Bedford, Buckingham, Towcester, Banbury, Aylesbury, Dunstable, Luton, Bicester, Witney, Abingdon, Oxford, Didcot, High Wycombe, Warwick, Stratford-upon-Avon, Rugby, Daventry, Kettering, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Corby, Market Harborough, St Albans, Cambridge, Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds, Hitchen, Stevenage, Saffron Walden, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk
On occasion I've even had commissions as far afield as Cornwall and Scotland, so if you're not sure if I work in your region simply pick up the phone and give me a call.
