It's been a productive month!

Ian and Alec have been working hard this month to produce some fantastic Leadlight windows for our customers, both new and old.  

Old Friends

 It has been a big week down in Bunbury for the team with our new project, restoring the windows at Saint Boniface Cathedral. Made originally by our dear and passed friends Gowers & Brown.

Something New

Our latest install is a memorial window for a local parish church 500mm x 1600mm dedicated to a man with a love of wine making, the beach and in general the Margaret river region. Designed by Joe and Ian, crafted and installed by Ian and Alec. We love the way that Lamberts Mouth blown antique glass projects colour and has that clean crisp almost transparent look.
