Tim Armstrong

I design, make and install stained glass windows, panels and mirrors. Clients’ wishes come first, then the needs and uses of buildings. A site visit and consultations are usually required before a design is agreed and work begins.

Most commissions require original artwork, but I have a large file of period designs for consultation. I enjoy mixing contemporary and traditional ideas.

My techniques include printing, painting, sandblasting, computer design, leaded lights and mirror work. Just phone or e-mail if you have project which you would like to discuss. My work is varied, and I am adaptable.

I also make kinetic, glass and mirror constructions for exhibition in galleries. For these I experiment with light, colour and motion.
