About me

This website gives you an introduction to my work as a designer and maker of original commissioned window and door panels which are made using traditional techniques and materials.

Glass is chosen to suit the location and ambient light, so the shade and quality of each piece changes with both the weather and the time of day.

Panels are designed in full partnership with clients, and have been exhibited nationally.

Commissions

Stained glass commissions are undertaken both locally and nationally. Commissioning a stained glass panel allows you to acquire a unique piece of art which is an expression of your ideas.

A complete service is provided from conception through to completion, and I aim to involve you fully in the design process.

My inspiration comes from the beauty of shapes and forms found in nature.

TESTIMONIALS

I met Dave at a Craft and Artisan Fair in Buxton in late 2013. I was blown away by his designs and decided there and then that I must have one of his glass panels in my home. Following an extremely interesting consultation/design/creation process my transom window was fitted on May 10th 2014. To say that I’m extremely pleased with it is a massive understatement!
What I particularly like is the fact that my window is uniquely mine – and Dave’s of course – as no-one else will have anything quite like it.

Sue Haywood, 2014

Dave proved to be the consumate artist and craftsman.
He listened carefully to our needs and asked for our thoughts on the solution. He communicated regularly about his suggested designs and colours, interpreting our ideas creatively. The final result is beautifully crafted. We are delighted with it and it is giving us and will continue to give us great pleasure.
