About Lighthouse Glass Company

Lighthouse Glass Company has been in business for 25 years. We started off in Kilmarnock under the name "Designs by Gail". We changed the name when we moved to Irvine as although the Designs by Gail name sounded small and friendly it said nothing about glass. Glass brings light into your house, I love lighthouses, and it gave us a theme with which to decorate the workshop, which is near the coast. We have been in Irvine for 10 years.

Traditional: We design and manufacture Stained Glass Panels using traditional methods. Cutting coloured glass, painting and firing it in a kiln, making a leaded framework around it, soldering the joints puttying it, allowing for whatever reinforcing or saddle bars may be applicable, and installing.

Overlay: A modern method of leading glass, with all the lead and colour going on to the surface of the glass. This is most often used in modern installations as it works in tandem with toughened, security glasses and double glazing. Because I do both traditional and overlay I make sure that the overlay looks as authentic as possible by soldering the leaded joints, utilising textured film and adding a patina to the lead.

Triple Glazing: Altering Traditional Stained Glass to suit new wooden or uPVC frames so that the old panel can be sealed within the cavity.

Sandblasting: Popular in the Victorian era as the clear/white of the glass brightens even the darkest hallway. It is versitile though, and can be used in conjunction with brilliant cutting for an ultra modern look.

Bevels: Whether an ornate cluster or simple diamond. This adds literally a new dimention to the glass. The bonus with this style is that you can focus on clears and textures and not involve colour at all, if you don't want to.

Fused Tiles: Definately modern, there are thosands of combinations and settings that would suit this relitively new on the market style. The molten glass look of the tile is just beautiful.

Mirrors: We can design to suit your decor or personalise mirrors for special occasions, weddings, anniversaries.

Bathrooms & Showers: Stained glass can look stunning in a bathroom providing that all important privacy whether it be used for a decorative window or perhaps shower enclosure, soft blues and greens can provide a calm and relaxing environment, for instance.

Kitchens: The vibrancy of stained glass in your kitchen ie. kitchen cabinets, windows or partitions, can add a new dimension to your work space, creating a happy and pleasurable area within which to work. Sunny yellows, oranges and reds work wonderfully well in a north facing kitchen.
