Great to work with Martin on this project. His professional approach all the way through has been brilliant from looking at the original design to completion especially dealing with our slightly picky choice of colours. We love the completed window. Just a minor marking down to take account of a couple of pieces of glass which suffered stress fractures and to be fair Martin is going out of his way and visiting us at home to rectify this. Thank you Martin, we would certainly come to you again. By Richard on 9th March 2022

Needed to get some stained-glass panels reconstituted to fit into two quatrefoil Portland stone windows - I didn’t really know where to begin. Martin came up with some great suggestions, clearly harvested from his years of experience. An enjoyable, consultative process throughout, culminating in windows sympathetic to their period. Many Thanks. By Tim Coley on 7th March 2022

I sent my beautiful tiffany lampshade by courier in perfect condition apart from the top...unfortunately Martin received it all bent and cracked. He repaired it and what a wonderful job he did repairing it. Lucia Buscaglia

Martin has done an excellent job repairing a large stained glass for us. Not only repairing it, but also improving on the original without losing any of its charm. 100% recommend. Thanks so much Martin.

I asked Martin if he could create a stained glass bird for me to give to my Gramps as he misses seeing the birds now hes moved to a carehome. Martin replied so quickly, nothing was a problem and he created the most beautiful blue tit! I've given it to my Gramps now and his face lit up! He is thrilled with his new blue tit visitor which is now hanging in his window and to see the smile on his face is wonderful. Thank you so much Martin!

I asked Martin to create a custom pet portrait out stained glass as a christmas present for a relative. I was blown away with how beautiful it turned out. The attention to detail within the work is extraordinary. Martin is a true craftsman and I can't wait to be able to give the stunning piece to it's new owner and see it hung in her front window with the sun streaming through. I know it will bring her pure joy whenever she sees in and once again I can't thank Martin enough for his beautiful work.

My husband commissioned a beautiful suncatcher for me in memory of our beloved cat, Ben. It is beautiful. We live in Menorca and the light catches it and reflects his image into my office

I asked Martin to make me a piece to hang in my window. So pleased with the results. I left the colour combinations to him to choose. I couldn't have improved on the choice. So happy with my commission. It makes me smile when I look at it. He made it promptly and was well packaged for the post. I couldn't be more pleased with the service and results.

We asked Martin to design and make a stained and leaded art deco internal window based on a similar design to wall lights in situ. Martin provided this and added a number of suggestions resulting in a really lovely feature for our home. We are very pleased with the outcome and would recommend Martin to anyone. Martin is reliable and provides a great service. Thank you Martin. Pete&Kim By Pete Dickinson on 25th July 2020

Martin came to my house yesterday to repair the stained glass in a front door panel. One of the stained glass panels had been completely broken - Martin did a brilliant in situ repair. After the repair, it was impossible to tell the stained glass had been broken. Martin also professionally cleaned the stained glass panel, so that it now looks even better than ever. I originally employed Martin 3-4 years ago to repair a completely broken stained glass panel, and also to replace the glass in leaded glass antique doors. Martin always does an incredibly professional job and is a real craftsman. He is also very efficient, reliable and a thoroughly nice person. I would highly recommend him.

We asked Martin to visit us to asses the damage to the large central pane of the stained glass window that makes up the entrance of our house in Northampton. Given that we had been forced to remove the pane to prevent further damage and it was now in many pieces, we were prepared for the worst outcome but we have been delighted with the result of the restoration. The hallway is now back to its former glory with the central pane looking better than ever. Martin kept us informed of his progress throughout the project and overall provided a skilled, high quality and sensibly priced service from start to finish - thank you Martin!

Just two panels from a Globe Wernicke barristers book case. Three of the leaded lights had got broken. Martin collected and returned beautifully restored. Can’t thank him enough, and would highly recommend his workmanship, and wish him well.

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 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!
