Dave Griffin - Stained Glass Artist based in Derbyshire
Design, making, restoration and repair of stained glass
Dave Griffin is a stained glass artist based in the Peak District in Derbyshire, but working both regionally and throughout the UK. 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.
All my work is made with a high degree of artistry and craftsmanship according to the Code of Practice of the British Society of Master Glass Painters.
Panels are designed in full partnership with clients, and have been exhibited nationally.

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