Lamberts Glass is Glass with a Soul

Perth Art Glass has just received a huge shipment of Lamberts Glass direct from Germany.

Lamberts still uses traditional methods to produce window glass: Mouth-blown glass is worked into flat panels in a complex procedure. They even manufacture coloured glass, so-called ‘streaky glass’ or ‘flashed glass’, by hand.

Their manufacturing methods result in glass with a specific structure, making it particularly suitable for use in historic preservation or glass art. Whether it’s the magnificent windows of the Dresdner Frauenkirche or modern glass artworks in the Rockefeller Centre - Lamberts Glass adds a special touch to old and new buildings alike.

Lamberts glass, previously only available as full sheets, is now for sale online as hobby squares, approximately 270mm x 270mm. The artisan gallery sheets are available in store as full sheets only. To see more styles, view our online range.

 
Courses

Many learners started this month with creativity, learning and laughter in our classroom. The leadlight weekend saw beginners create their own leadlight panel from start to finish and our copperfoiling beginners created feathers. We are sure they will use their new skills in many future artistic endeavours.

Claire hosted a remote mosaic workshop with our regional groups in Carnarvon and Denham who are working together to create a large scale mosaic piece inspired by their surrounds.

Recent works

Left:
This superb window was for a client whose window looked over to the neighbouring property. It makes a pretty solution for both sides of the fence.

All the glass used in this project was from our friends at Wissmach Glass.
 
Right:
A recent client wanted a stained glass entry that would remind them of the strange year we had. She requested that the year was discreetly worked into the door panel design we were commissioned to make.
So here it is! Rotate the image (or yourself) 90 degrees to see it.
The door still has a Victorian / federation look to ensure it fits the feel of the rest of the house and blends in with the pressed tin wall and ceiling cladding in the interior.
