Repair to front door panel, November 2020
The window looks fantastic, thank you so much for your meticulous work. Perfect.
Commission for numbered transom, October 2020
We just wanted to send you an email to say how happy we are with the stained glass - it’s honestly beautiful and we can’t stop looking at it!  We’ve had to wait until today to finally see it in all of its glory as fitting had been delayed, but now it’s up we are just so so happy! We have already had so many comments from friends and family about it and I have passed your website on to all of them, including our door fitter who said how beautiful the glass was! Also to say that Debbie did a wonderful job with the numbers! 
Commission for internal transom, October 2020
 Dear both, this is just a line to say ... how successful the deco panel has been... even on dull days it is very decorative, and in the morning sun it is an absolutely brilliant glowing spectacle - not just the light pouring through all the colours, but in the secondary coloured light that it sends to the walls. It has transformed a rather dull lit hallway, and has even lifted the effect of the stained glass panel in the inner door itself.
Repair to leaded lights, March 2020
 Your repair to the leaded windows in the summerhouse is excellent – thank you so much...We are thrilled to bits to have the repair done so quickly and so beautifully, especially in the current circumstances. Thank you so much.
New commission for feature panel, February 2020
Mark and Debbie are wonderful to work with, so creative, enthusiastic and skilled in their art. I took a photograph of a special painting to them and they recreated it as a beautiful, inspirational window in glass. It was a house-warming present to my daughter and she and her whole family love it and are thrilled by how it adds an emotional and visually exciting aspect to their room. It changes with the light and uplifts the spirit. Thank you so much.
Repair to front door panel, January 2020
The door looks fabulous. Thank you for the speedy service.
New commission for front door and transom panels, August 2019
 Just to say thanks again for your excellent work on our door. We are delighted with the new stained glass and think it looks great. [Our daughter] said when she saw it "is that our new front door? WOW!" -- sentiments which we all share. We really appreciate the care and attention that has gone into this work.
New commission for set of front door panels, November 2018
Thanks ever so much - we absolutely love the new stained glass windows!  Every time we're in the hall or kitchen we can't stop thinking how amazing they look!  We even had a card through the door this morning from one of our neighbours saying how beautiful it all looks - "like a work of art" in their words!
New commission for transom feature window, August 2018
Thank-you so much for making such a fantastic window. I am so pleased with both the design and colours. It surpassed my expectations, which were high, and I can’t wait to have it up in our hallway
Commission for sliding pocket doors, May 2018
AN EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE RECEIVED! From initial enquiry through to installation, our experience with Designs in Glass was exceptional. Mark and Debbie worked with us to design and create 4 stained glass panels for a pair of pocket doors, for the entry way in our home. We received an excellent level of service, they were upfront about the cost, we had the opportunity to select each piece of glass and they were communicative throughout the process. Outstanding quality, creative design and a now beautifully complete home. Thank you so much.

New commission for two oval feature windows, June 2017
We have just collected our two oval stained glass windows that we commissioned from Mark and Debbie. They are absolutely beautiful and are everything we hoped they would be - the workmanship is fantastic.  Mark and Debbie are very welcoming and happy to discuss thoughts and ideas and will make suggestions to improve the designs. A very professional service and we would highly recommend 'Designs in Glass'.
Repair to stained glass front door panel, April 2017
Thank you so much again for the fantastic job you did. The window looks amazing and one can easily see how much care and thought went into the production process. We can't be grateful enough. I am not sure how often we need stained glass repaired in our house, but I will make sure I recommend you and Debbie as often as I possibly can.
New commission for front door, February 2017

Lead light repairs , December 2016
Thank you for all your work today. The windows look beautiful.  
New commission for internal door, November 2016
Mark and Debbie made and fitted glass panels in a door for me in my Edwardian terraced house. I am *delighted* and I recommend them very highly. The result is beautiful. They put artistic flair into it, while still managing to listen to what I wanted and to fit their design to my vague sense of what I was asking for. And the craftsmanship in the installation was perfect. Their work is highly professional, with artistic flair.
New commission for front door, November 2016
It has been almost a year since we had the glass in our 1930s front door replaced by Mark. Since then not a day has gone by when I have not thought to myself that ‘this was one of the best jobs that has been carried out in our house’. The stained glass has not only improved the overall feel of the hallway, making it more interesting and providing a beautiful array of colours when the sun comes through but has also restored an original door into a beautiful entrance statement. The colours and textures carefully chosen by Mark match the original perfectly.  Mark had us involved in the whole design process and checked that we were happy with everything throughout the design process. He was extremely reliable and his price was very competitive and went above and beyond in terms of the time he spent with us and the attention to detail. This was by far the best customer satisfaction experience I have had in a long time. Something that seems hard to get these days.
New commission for front door, November 2016
It looks absolutely splendid. Thank you so much. It has more than lived up to our hopes. Can't wait till Saturday morning to see it in daylight - though it's splendid enough now. Off to stand outside again and look in at my dream door!

New commission for front door, August 2016
I am so pleased with the new Windows in my front door. They look as though they've always been there yet are obviously contemporary - exceeded my expectations by a long way!
New bi-fold doors with stained glass, June 2016
Thank you so much for the magnificent piece of work! We're both so impressed how beautiful the doors are. I keep them shut most of the time so can enjoy the view. Not very practical but sooo satisfying! ;-) I smile every time I look at them. Started thinking where else we could put stained glass in the house ;-) Thanks again! It was such pleasure to work with you...... The doors are the most beautiful asset to our deco - and bring us lots of joy, lots of speechless visitors.

New commission for front door window, March 2016
Thank you Mark (and Debbie for your design skills), It was a pleasure to work with you on designing and installing this window as a surprise Birthday present for my mother: from your sensitivity and patience (despite my vagueness at design stage), and for offering your own creative inspiration - to working to a tight time frame, and problem solving quickly and efficiently at fitting, in order to be able to unveil on the day. Mark listened and communicated and offered practical and creative advice throughout the process; went out of his way to make this a special birthday surprise; and made me feel like we were on the same wave length from start to finish. We are thrilled with the result which brings soft light, warmth and subtle beauty to a previously dark hallway! Great job, really enjoyable experience! Highly recommended. Thank you
New commission for internal window, March 2016
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mark and Debbie's wonderful work - helpful, patient and supportive through the whole designing process and with fantastic end results - a beautifully made piece that's transformed a window with no view into a lovely focal point - thank you both so much.

New window commission, October 2015
Just to thank you again for the fantastic stained glass and for taking so much time and trouble over it. It's everything we'd hoped for and more. The light it casts into the bathroom when the sun's behind it is mesmerising.
We'd wholeheartedly endorse your work; the experience has been a great pleasure from day one.

Repair to stained glass window, December 2014
I thought you might like to know that our son, normally the harshest critic of any work we have done on the house, was home last weekend. His comment on the stained glass repair was, basically, “Wow.” Praise doesn't come much higher than that!
New commission for front door, to client's design, October 2014
Thank you so much for making up the panels for us and for all your advice and help in choosing the colours. It has been fascinating to watch the windows change over the course of the day and evening and then to wake up to them this morning with the sun coming through them. We are really going to enjoy living with the new addition to our home. Many thanks once again. We couldn't be more pleased with the end result.
New commission for front door and transom, to client's design, August 2014
I had some very good advice from Mark as I was planning to have stained glass panels made up and fitted into a upvc front door and fanlight. Stained glass, as he told me, is designed for wood doors but as I had upvc the stained glass had to be encased inside double glazed units. He and Debbie painstakingly went through my designs and choice of colour and must have put hours into this job for which I will be eternally grateful - nothing was too much. I can't stop admiring my beautiful new door!
New commission for front door, to client's design, August 2014
I love the panel you have made for our door. It is exactly what I wanted and the glass in the roses is fantastic! I wish we hadn't waited for 15 years to do this! I really appreciate all the advice you gave on the glass and the care you took in turning my picture into reality.

Repair to glass shade, January 2014
Just to say thank you for the fantastic repair job you did for us! Our little glass shade looks wonderful in situ again!
New commission for front door, January 2014
A relatively small commission for Mark, but he provided a very personal and helpful service, taking the time to send us various prototype designs and even photos of how they would look in place once made. I appreciated the help in choosing the types of glass and the colours for each component and always felt very confident in the final outcome. Now we have a beautiful new front door, many thanks!
New commission for front door, to client's design, December 2013
We commisioned Designs in Glass to make a stained glass panel for a 1930's front door. We wanted to keep the facade of the house true but with a bit of personalisation. We decided on a snowdrop as the theme for the panel and drew (not vey well!) what we thought we wanted and emailed it over. Mark duly returned the design, drawn properly this time, with a couple of options. We then visited the workshop to choose each individual colour for the diffent sections. Whilst we were pretty sure in our mind exactly what we wanted, both Mark and Debbie were keen to offer advice based on their vast experience. This advice proved invaluable as the end result was so much better than we could ever have hoped, a truly beautiful door that transformed the front of our house. We have received many compliments on our new door but I think the best testament is the fact that the Lady of the house managed to scrape her car on the wall when parkingup the drive as she was too busy admiring the door that was already a couple of weeks old. Mark and Debbie are a lovely couple who listened to what we wanted and delivered a piece almost identical to our original design. They were ontime with delivery and very easy to work with. It's just a shame we only have one front door.
Window repairs for chapel and hall, November 2013
We had several badly broken stained glass windows at our church's premises in Wooburn Green. Mark gave us useful practical advice and several options for full versus partial rebuilding - all very clearly explained and priced. The end result was excellent: a combination of rebuilt and repaired windows with carefully matched replacement glass where required. All done on time and to budget. Can't recommend too highly - we would certainly use them again.
