"Lucian Stained Glass provided a first class service to me in the restoration of my Victorian property. The bespoke nature of the service was highly impressive where by the process really involved the client being listened to and the finished product always reflecting high standards in terms of quality, finish and attention to detail." M. Henleaze.

"We commissioned our front door and side panels to be re-glazed in the authentic victorian style of other properties in the road. From photographs taken Lucian Stained Glass designed and built these beautiful door panels using reclaimed glass. To our delight, some of the panel sections were from one of the churches on the Gloucester Road. The resulting completed windows have exceeeded our expectations and have been admired ny neighbours and friends alike." Peter

"Three years ago I first got in touch with Jude to design and make a mirror for my sister's wedding present. Since then I have commissioned Jude to create a window hanging for my parent's 40th Wedding Anniversary and most recently to replace glass panels in two of our interior doors. All Jude's work has been outstanding and a joy to look at. My sister says that she smiles every time she uses her mirror, which is in her hallway and my parents enjoy their window hanging every time they look out of their lounge window. For myself and my family the beautiful pieces of work Jude has undertaken for our interiors doors is second to none. The classic glass panels with Bristol blue diamonds in one door and a skylight send our house back to the 1900's when it was first built and the more modern Clifton Suspension Bridge design in the porch door transforms our hallway into a serene place to be. I personally get alot of pleasure from seeing these pieces of work and smile very time I pass them. My husband and two boys thought they were fantastic - the boys were speechless (amazing for boys of 3 and 7 years!), my oldest was particularly happy as he loves Brunel! I have also proudly shown anyone who happen's to visit our house and we have had nothing but admiration. Thanks so much Jude, your workmanship, professionalism and customer service is to be recommended - and I will be showing off your work as oftern as I can!" Mary Gable

"When we began the process of renovating our Victorian cottage, we had always wanted to install some leaded lights around the porch. I had a few ideas of the style of glass that I wanted and sent Jude some photo's of our exisiting porch and also the pictures from books I'd seen to share my ideas with her. I wasn't even sure of how we would go about it, let alone how much it would cost and if we could afford it within our renovating budget. From that first e-mail contact from her website (which shows some excellent examples of her work), Jude was a true professional. We were particularly impressed by her competitive pricing and that the work included not only making the glass to our design but also installing it too. It was only after accepting her quote that I realised that Jude is a real artisan, using mostly reclaimed victorian glass - (so it has all the lovely hues and imperfections of real victorian glass), so our window has a history too. I really enjoyed visiting Jude at her studio in Bristol and actually had the opportunity of learning a few basic techniques in cutting glass and creating the lead frame. It was amazing to watch the windows come together and know that they were truly unique. Now the windows are installed in our renovated home, they look even more beautiful than in the studio. The light floods through them, illuminating our front entrance. I'm so glad we've been able to add our own original and bespoke glass, that we will continue to enjoy for many years to come - and it wasn't as expensive as i'd thought! I would whole heartedly recommend Jude to anyone thinking of creating or restoring leaded/ stained glass windows in their home. Thanks Jude for a truly personal service, and excellence from start to finish."
