Glasshouse & Co

Glasshouse was established by Fiona Thomson in 2015. Working with stained glass combined her interests in interior design, working by hand with minimal machinery and a passion for creating her own designs. She is inspired by botanicals & architecture amongst many other things.

Fiona studied 3D Design at Brighton University, her graduation pieces were published notably in Elle Decoration & and The Telegraph magazine. They were also featured online by many interior/design websites including Designboom and Dezeen.

She has worked in various industries including buying, silversmithing, photography and magazine interior styling, yet not finding the right one to settle into. Fiona decided she wanted to learn her own unique craft and create a handmade business of her own.

She attended a few different evening classes in stained glass, bought all the essential tools she needed to start and got designing. Her creations have been featured in The Stylist & Home Style magazines and she has worked on large commissions for Bombay Sapphire and has stocked numerous shops across the UK.

Everything is designed and handmade by Fiona in her home studio by the sea in Worthing, she hopes her small business continues to grow.

Additional policies and FAQs
FAQs

• How long until my order is shipped?
Most orders will be shipped between 1-2 weeks from when the order was placed. If you have ordered multiple items, the lead time may increase; the customer will be informed if this is case.

• Do you ship internationally?
Yes, I do. Internationally shipping costs will occur, please contact me for fees.

• How do I care for my stained glass piece?
Never use products that you use to clean regular household glass with! This will damage the solder and copper foil. All items are waxed and cleaned before shipping, if you want to clean it, use a clean and dry cotton cloth.
For jewellery, try not to get it wet, spray perfume or sun cream on it or the patina will discolour quickly. Don’t drop it either!

• Do you do custom orders?
Yes I most certainly do. If you have an idea or want to discuss a custom order please email me at glasshouses.info [!at] gmail.com
Please note that all custom orders are non-refundable once the production process has begun and payment must be fully cleared before production.

• What materials do you use?
Glasshouse use 3 mm clear or stained glass, solder that is 60% tin and 40% lead, as it standard for most stained glass items and patina acid for coloring. Finally it is waxed using renaissance wax.
