"Ooh-La-La Lovely" ...Custom Bevelled and Leaded Glass by Glassworks Studio..

Inspired by a 16th century English Tudor Castle these leaded panels are for a grand modern kitchen...originally created for New Jersey kitchen designer Jim Dove. A graceful blend of modern and period elements for the 2012 showhouse at Glynallyn Castle in Morristown New Jersey.

My focus this afternoon is polishing these beautiful bevels before the panels are assembled... and I can not take my eyes off them... the hairs on my arms stand up as I look at the glass cut, clarity and beautiful..

Simply in design.. old world quality.. yet classy and elegant.  Everything that I love to do simply comes together with this project..

Here are some photos... Nothing like sitting on the cutting table Friday afternoon eating lunch and looking at some amazing glass..sit back and enjoy.. k

Sidelites with a clean contemporary feel.. with bevels and jewels just because... Glassworks Studio

Here are some photos of the sidelites that were completed in studio this week. Now we are waiting for the tempered glass and the LoE to arrive so that they can be sealed into thermals..  These sidelites are "long and lean" measuring  8 7/8 x 92 3/4".  I know they have a contemporary feel... to me I just think "timeless!"  Functional and beautiful art glass...  I love these!

Spring is here...time for a change...sidelites..and a few leaded windows...

I began this week cleaning the studio...organizing the tools.. taking inventory...and moving glass into the new glass racks in the back space... The beveller arrived all fixed up.. and so we start...

The first of the family crests is off to a great start with all of the leaf work cut and foiled now...other sections are with my sandblaster having the names blasted into the cathedral glass so I can back paint them... 

Our exciting contemporary project in Oakville has had another adjustment as the sidelites have gone from 76" to 92" in height full scale layout is now complete...and ready to build...

And multiple cabinet inserts have been completed and delivered to their new home..  There just is not enough time in the day...and the days fly by... I cannot believe tomorrow is already Friday again.

Here are a some pictures.. have a great weekend!
