1920’s Peacock Window
1920’s Peacock Window, Bookham.
My customer has a beautiful washstand in her hall. The tiles on this washstand have a wonderful art nouveau peacock feather design. I have used this as inspiration for her front door panel.
We think there must have originally been a window in the front door but it had been removed and boarded up at some point in the past. We removed two layers of boarding and replaced it with this shiny leaded light! And what a difference this has made to her hall bringing in loads more light.
I have used a combination of pale tinted glasses with different textures to give life and add interest to the panel. The peacock feathers eye has been created using great streaky glass and a bold cobalt blue swirly glass called Baroque. There is one single round bar across the centre to give added strength. Vital in a front door panel!
