New stained glass for a historic house

Really enjoyed making these two large stained glass panels for a historic house in Teignmouth. The house already had a beautiful, large original stained glass windows. Some of which were skillfully painted in the high Victorian style. I took inspiration from details of these original windows and some inspiration from a Medieval  book of medicinal plants called ‘The New Herbal’ from the 1530’s (in Exeter Library Rare Book Collection) with its many woodcut images of plants. 

The two panels make up the window and door of the toilet and are just under a meter long. Due to the need for privacy the panels have a good deal of acid etched details and give plenty of interesting things to look at whilst spending time in the smallest room!
