The restoration of this arts & crafts house involved creating glass to match the original remaining lead lights for windows and vestibule doors to keep the continuity of design through the hallway. Large spun roundels were sourced from English Antique Glass to replicate the original glazing.

The refurbishment and repair of this 1930's entrance led to replacing all the plain glass with a new stained glass scheme with the design referencing a favourite place of the clients that personalises the design.

Monknash, Vale of Glamorgan

This new window designed by Christian was an external window but is now internal following a new extension being built. It was kept to borrow the light from one room to another and provides an ideal opportunity to create a functional feature.

A combination of handblown and rolled glass was used to modulate the light and sparkle on the surface. The subtle blues and browns tie in with the clients interior design scheme.

This panel was created for a new front door made by joinery conservator LM Conservation. Designed by Christian it was made to match the period of the house to replace a door of the wrong style and materials. The design was developed in conjunction with the client and had a custom fabricated support bar made.

Ryan Stained Glass has been involved with the care and repair of the flat iron casement windows at St John's House in Bridgend. Re glazing of the lead light panels was needed and some in situ repairs were required using restoration glass.

Hide, St Donats, Vale of Glamorgan

These door panels were designed and made for boutique camping and accommodation, 'Hide at St Donats. They are the bedroom doors for the Waldon Lodge and were based on the theme of 'Into the Woods'. The simple black and white scheme echoes the interior design and the milky white glass and handblown seedy glass both let the light in but also provide privacy in the bedroom.

St David Lewis, Bettws, Newport

This new window designed by Christian was commissioned as a work to reflect the parish life from its origins to the current day. The window is full of symbolism from the shamrock depicting the Irish immigrants to the multicoloured flecks representing the multicultural parishioners of today.

Holy Trinity, Llandow

This project involved the removal of the two lights while a new mullion was made by the stone masons. The panels were badly bowed with pieces almost falling out and needed rebuilding with repairs to cracked pieces in the borders.

The glass was very gently cleaned removing old mortar and render splashes. The profile of the lead was matched to the original and the original wrought iron tie bars stripped back, repainted and re used. The glass was installed in conjunction with the stonemasons reinstating the mullion.
