Stained Glass Commissions

New Commissions are unique designs created by Alan Robinson for you. Each Stained Glass Panel is designed to fit a particular space, following detailed consultation.

Typically a first meeting (at the studio or at your home/premises) will discuss your general ideas and budget.

From this, I will create some sketch designs and an estimate. Further meetings will look at glass samples, fitting issues and refining the design.

Once a final design and cost has been agreed, a timescale for production is arranged. Sometimes a 25% deposit is required for material outlays, otherwise the fee is payable on completion.

Testimonials

"Alan designed and made a stained glass panel for a door in a listed cottage we own in Luss. This was the first time we used Alan and would use his services again as we were very happy with the whole process and delighted with the end results. His communication both by email and telephone were excellent, we went to his workshop twice to chose samples and see work in progress and he made two home visits. He was punctual and efficient, made the panel in the time frame discussed and installed it as planned. He gave us an initial quotation, then as our design and materials changed he let us know that it affected the final cost. We would recommend Ramoyle Glass Studio to others and use him again."

"Alan designed and created a beautiful stained glass window for my hall in Autumn of last year. My brief was a bit vague and changed radically after his first visit re colour and design,  and on his next visit he produced 4 possible designs. Having chosen the design, I visited Alan in his workshop to choose the glass. He was easy to work with, steered me through possibilities and was open to my ideas too. A couple of weeks later the glass was ready and a perfect fit. Again Alan came and installed with ease. Am very happy with it and it is much admired by all. "

Recent Projects

Just completed repair of an elaborate leaded window at a home near Falkirk. About 20 broken pieces were replaced in-situ. The pictured panel was badly damaged with a silcone glued patch! At the customer's request, I removed the rusted metal frame and re-built the leaded panel with a re-instated border. The panel was then re-fitted without the metal frame. As the fitting was directly into stonework, exact sizing was critical.

This Stained Glass window was designed, made and fitted by Alan Robinson Glass for Queen Victoria School, Dunblane. The window commemorates the Centenary of the school chapel. The blue areas are made of two layers of glass, giving a beautiful rich blend of tones. The top area is clear glass with traditional silver stain applied, giving a characterful golden wash of colour. The inscription has been etched onto the glass. The window glows with colour in the muted context of the Chapel, creating a dramatic focus as one enters.

A window designed for a customer in Glasgow. It is fitted over a double glazed window in a hallway - providing privacy and creating a stunning feature in the entrance. The size is 500mm x 1250mm; it features an unusual handmade glass by Lamberts in the 'leaves'. The design was informed by images from a Barbara Hepworth exhibition and a ceramic vase.
