Lion replica window update

I have used design software to create a pattern as close as possible to the photo image. The pattern has a small border which I estimate to be 0.75". There are 5 distinct circles which I estimate are 3" diameter; the centre section is clearly a different colour or texture from the remainder of the window which is clear glass. This centre section may be textured and opaque.

If anyone can remember the original window and can remember the colours, I would be very grateful if you would let me know.

Replica Lion Window Project

During my infrequent visits to the Lion (purely for research!) I noticed an old photo of the pub showing the original lead light windows at the top of the left hand bay (British Legion side).

The window in the middle is of particular interest, and I hope to make a replica of it. This blog will record the progress.

The first step is to manipulate the image to drop it into the stained glass design software. After much frustration I have ended up with this-

Next stage is to create a template (called a cartoon) which is the cutting and leading pattern.

The cevtre section appears to be different colours so any views on these are very welcome.

Welcome to Moulton Glass!

Bear with me while the site is set up. I hope to be able to showcase on this blog some of the designs and glass products I've made. Anybody who was at Moulton Village Christmas Fair this weekend will have had a chance first hand to see the new range of Christmas decorations - and even buy a raffle ticket to win a unique Christmas Moulton Crow (the proceeds of which will go the real Moulton Crows!)
