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.

The glass I use is specially chosen to suit the location and ambient light, and as a result the shade and quality of each piece changes with both the weather and the time of day.

Panels are especially designed in full partnership with clients, and have also 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 above all 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.

Dear Dave, I would like to thank you for our amazing stained glass window. You captured exactly the design and colours we wanted for the round window in our bedroom….. it just brings the room to Life! It was great working with you to create the design of the Perle D’Azure Clematis , a nod to our Horticultural Nursery as we are now retired. Thanks also for coming to fit the window. It is truly inspirational and unique to us!

Sylvia and Tony Slater, 2016

We asked Dave to design two front door panels and transom above, to give our bed and breakfast an impressive look. He did not disappoint . Dave worked with us on ideas to reflect our love of the Peak District with stylised glass work bringing out great colours and textures resulting in a fantastic piece of art. Dave kept in touch all the way through the process and is obviously a very skilled craftsman. Thank you very much..

Maggie and Brent Storey, 2016

What an exciting experience, commissioning Dave Griffin to produce a piece of stained glass for a small window in some renovation works in France. Dave was inspirational with his original design, based on some of my photographs of our local tree frogs.His advice on which colours and glass types to use added greatly to the overall design. The finished panel is absolutely wonderful and so well executed.

Fran Challis, 2015

Our Cheviot windows are beautiful, changing in depth of colour and hue depending upon the time of day and the weather outside. We are delighted with your attention to detail, the variety of textures and the way you have combined the different types of glass has given an excellent result. We really enjoy looking at the view in, rather than through our window.
