Leadwork

To create traditional leaded windows and panels for exterior and interior use. Starting with a full size drawing (or cartoon) each individual piece of glass is cut by hand to the exact shape and size required. The pieces are then assembled together into ‘H’ section lead cames held together using horseshoe nails.

When the leadwork is completed the joints at which each lead came abutts another is soldered. The panel is then cemented to strengthen it and make it watertight. It is then polished ready to be installed.
