We commissioned Martin to make a dolphin themed hanger to place on the glass panel at the bow of our narrowboat, which has a sailing ship theme with dolphins on the bow art. He totally nailed it and is a nice guy to deal with as a bonus.

I have the absolute pleasure of owning several pieces made by Martin and can totally recommend his work. He makes sure that customers are happy and is a pleasure to deal with.
We purchased many lovely pieces of Martins work over the last few years, We were so happy with the pieces we baught, we asked Martian to make us a bespoke piece that we designed ourselfs, it turned out better than we could of hoped for we can not sing his praises highly enough.

I took a very damaged stained glass window to Martin, there were three sections in total, one needed cleaning and two for repair, the end result is brilliant, it's now reframed in oak and looks better than new, highly recommended, many thanks.

I have bought several items from Martin, most particularly a stained glass rocking horse. I have been delighted with the items which are of a very high quality. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
I bought loads of Yule gifts at Martin's studio. Went along for 2 or 3, came out with a bagful! (And enjoyed some mulled wine while I was there!) Everyone was bowled over with their unique and beautiful presents. Of course, I bought myself a few treats too!
Definitely going back there - loads more things that I had my eye on!

“Thank you Martin for an excellent piece of work. We commissioned you from a recommendation and you have excelled that recommendation with a piece of art that we are delighted with.
Your selection of types of glass used was very good and your idea of Tiffany style of lead work, works very well.
Again thank you so much and look forward to working with you in the future.”

Martin, what a fantastic job!
As the owners of this piece we have to congratulate you
on a brilliant interpretation of our original design.
You have restored our faith in artisan craftsmen having been disappointed many times in the past.
It has been a pleasure working with you. We are now looking for more candidate windows!!
The Stained glass fits like a glove, thank you Martin! It has certainly transformed our door from whichever room I look at it. I really love it and think it's one of Hasty's best features!"
