About

High-quality, unique, sustainable leadlight homewares made from recycled scrap glass. I combine colours and textures for truly personalised items.

I love glass. It reflects, refracts, feels intriguing and looks amazing. As long as I've been alive, my father has made leadlight windows using stained glass. I grew up playing with his sample box, getting messy with the waterproofing putty, and picking invisible glass splinters out of my bare feet. Dad still has a business that he now runs full-time along with picture framing, and he has a LOT of offcuts that are too small or oddly-shaped to be used... and that's where I come in.

My terrariums and glass objects use materials that would otherwise be thrown out, repurposing them into something beautiful. Each piece of glass is meticulously chosen, hand-cut, soldered, and polished. Every object has its own unique feel and personality, so I hope you can find one that suits you!

    I spent my childhood around my leadlighter father playing with colourful, wonderful glass. I now love to utilise the scrap glass from my father's leadlighting and custom-framing businesses and turn them into beautiful, unique items.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

The solder lines have been polished to a bright copper finish and will gradually tarnish over time. This can create a lovely vintage look, but can easily be polished back to it's original finish. I recommend a gentle car polish such as Mother's California Gold Carnauba Car Wax - simply apply with a soft cloth and polish off.

I have tested each terrarium for a basic level of waterproofing, but I can't guarantee that they won't leak. As such, if using it with plants, I would recommend protecting the surface on which the terrarium sits (just in case).

Obviously, glass is fragile, so handle with care! Treat it carefully and you should be able to hand it down to your grandkids x

Packaging materials

The very fragile nature of glass items means I have to use a LOT of packaging to keep them safe whilst on transit to you. Because I believe in minimising waste and living a sustainable existence, I may use recycled packaging - please consider reusing the packaging yourself and encouraging the person who receives it from you to do the same!

Postage Insurance

The shipping company does not include insurance for damaged items. I put a lot of time and care into ensuring each item is packed as safely as possible, but if you are concerned about the possibility of damage, I strongly encourage you to convo me to take out independent insurance on your package. In the unlikely event that your item arrives damaged, please convo me ASAP.
