Great to work with Martin on this project. His professional approach all the way through has been brilliant from looking at the original design to completion especially dealing with our slightly picky choice of colours. We love the completed window. Just a minor marking down to take account of a couple of pieces of glass which suffered stress fractures and to be fair Martin is going out of his way and visiting us at home to rectify this. Thank you Martin, we would certainly come to you again.

I needed to get some stained-glass panels reconstituted to fit into two quatrefoil Portland stone windows - I didn’t really know where to begin. Martin came up with some great suggestions, clearly harvested from his years of experience. An enjoyable, consultative process throughout, culminating in windows sympathetic to their period. Many Thanks.

Martin came recommened and did not dissapoint. One stained glass panel of my front door was completely broken and Martin expertly repaired the panel so it was impossible to tell any damage was done. Martin was extremely understading and helpful and did everything possible to make sure the job was done professionally and to the highest standard. A very honest and genuine guy, couldn't recommed more. Thank you Martin!

Martin has been a great help with the stained glass pieces I have wanted over the last few months. He is always an absolute pleasure to talk to and his art work is such great quality! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and I look forward to my future pieces of work! Both myself and my partner are very happy with his work. Thank you!!

Martin was recommended to us and we would like to say a big thank you to him.
He not only replaced the broken glass on our lamp he also ensured it's metal frame was repaired also.
He also was very economic when cutting the glass had some left over for another project.
We will definitely use Martin again and highly recommend him very happy

We asked Martin to design and make a stained and leaded art deco internal window based on a similar design to wall lights in situ. Martin provided this and added a number of suggestions resulting in a really lovely feature for our home. We are very pleased with the outcome and would recommend Martin to anyone. Martin is reliable and provides a great service.
Thank you Martin.

Martin came to my house yesterday to repair the stained glass in a front door panel. One of the stained glass panels had been completely broken - Martin did a brilliant in situ repair. After the repair, it was impossible to tell the stained glass had been broken. Martin also professionally cleaned the stained glass panel, so that it now looks even better than ever. I originally employed Martin 3-4 years ago to repair a completely broken stained glass panel, and also to replace the glass in leaded glass antique doors.
Martin always does an incredibly professional job and is a real craftsman. He is also very efficient, reliable and a thoroughly nice person. I would highly recommend him.

What beautiful job you did on Jill’s lampshade!
Sorry that I couldn’t get their myself to pick it up but
Jill and I are delighted to have it back and looking so good.
We’re very grateful to have met you and hope to deal with you again in the future.

All the Very Best
Howard & Jill

It is rare these days to find a craftsman who has the skills, aptitude and who ‘goes the extra mile’ to deliver on time and in a professional and caring manner. But Martin is that person. I recommend his work and professional service wholeheartedly.
