A hero in the picture.



Apologies to all non-radio people for the jargon in the following...

In the June 2009 issue of the magazine Practical Wireless
a four page interview is published with the great George Dobbs, G3RJV.

Well known worldwide to QRP-ers and other radio amateurs and SWLs, George with his writing has made radio electronics accessible to all.
I am sure many many people, like myself have made homebrew equipment that actually works because of the clear writing, inventive ways of doing things and no-frills techniques of George.
A junk box, a soldering iron and the PW articles of George is all that is
needed for years of educational fun.

The stained glass callsign shown here was made for George last year as a little thank you for the enjoyment I got from making the many projects published in PW, written by G3RJV.
Hope his retirement from being a Vicar of St.Aidans church in Sudden, Rochdale
will give him more time to spend on sharing his QRP construction work with readers of 'Carrying on the Practical Way' and being the editor of SPRAT, the
quarterly magazine of the G Qrp club.


Thanks must go also to Rob Mannion, G3XFD/EI5IW editor of Practical Wireless who kindly delivered the stained glass callsign to George. Thanks Rob!

Glance at Glass: Waterville.


In our series: Glance at Glass, the following in particular is very close to our hearts.

With daring "fireworks" around the head and body and the intense blue, red and purples in these windows it makes for a very warm display.

Having been involved with extracting, releading and finally placing the three windows in to the then new church of Waterville, Co.Kerry in 1990, I grew very fond of the left angle in the bottom part of the main centre window.

In 1994, our own panel called Waterville Angle was heavily influenced by the above mentioned. With her out stretched arm I felt it was a perfect place to perch a Peregrine.

The lovely old Waterville church from which the windows were taken was tucked away under the fuchsia bushes. Well, that is how I remember it anyway.
It was a bit up the mountain slightly closer to the village than the new church. I wonder if it is still there?

The two side panels of St.Patrick and St.Joseph, flanking the centre piece are not shown here.
When in Waterville, these windows are worth a visit.

All season flowers



These randomly arranged, roughly fire painted flowers feature in the dome of a garden arch.
The curly whirls in between them give the whole thing a distinct garden feel.
It is the same design as in one of our bigger lampshades.
In the arch however the daylight has full reign.

Colours have been kept deliberately earthy and subdued
to allow the natural colours in the garden to dominate.

Sneak preview.


Tralee GAA logo.

We don't want to give away about
this too much yet but...

This is a fire painted detail of a
window which is been made at the moment
for a pub in Tralee.

The window is going to be right behind
the new bar of this old, recently
refurbished lovely place.

Little Oak Glass studio has made numerous
pieces for this pub in the past.
Although a lot of painstaking work, we
are delighted with this very special
commission.

Watch this space !

Warhammer 40K excitement !




Some time ago a friend asked us if we do windows for 40K dioramas.
We had absolutely no idea what he was talking about.

After a lengthy explanation we understood the intention but were still
in no man’s land as to what all this fuss was all about.

Having been send a few images we got intrigued with the sheer creativity
that is involved with the Warhammer game art and the out of this world creatures in it.

Not particularly in to gaming ourselves, we could still see why people get hooked on model making and become fascinated with the ins and outs of an apparently very sophisticated game.

Anyway, making stained glass windows of this small a scale was new to us.
But after getting used to using the magnifying glass it turned out
to be a very pleasing exercise.

The circular pieces shown here are 15.5cm in diameter.
The sword piece is approx. 16.5cm wide and 19.5cm in height.

Invitation to a weekly feast for the eyes.




It seems like a good idea to present to you some
"hidden" Kerry stained glass treasures.

In a series of bite size snippets we intent to feature some of the
most remarkable pieces of stained glass dotted all over our
beautiful County of Kerry.

As such I just have to start in Dingle.

Harry Clarke's unique style stained glass windows in de convent chapel of Díseart Institute of Education and Celtic Culture are well-known.

The photo above is a detail of one of the windows in Dingle.

Please turn off your mobile phone when going there.

Residential stained glass.

One of the great things in this business is meeting clients for the first time. There might be a bit of uncertainty as to what the stained glass product should look like in the end.

On the one hand that's great, because it means clients are open to all
kinds of suggestions and there might be great space for new ideas.
On the other hand it can sometimes be difficult for people to make
up their mind as to what a finished product should look like.

We in Little Oak Stained Glass understand how difficult this can be.
After all, stained glass is made to last and if all is well it should
provide years and years of value for the customer.
That's why we have developed a way of gently assisting people in making
the right decision. No worries, no hassle.

Of course the gallery on our website is a great way for orientation.
But sometimes more is needed to discover people’s preferences.

A substantial checklist of likes and dislikes is drawn up together with
the client with on the spot sketches and designs at hand.
A further magnificent exploratory tool is the PC.
Designs are still made the old fashion way, with paper and pencil.
Then photos of the actual situation can be manipulated.
We introduce glass designs into the photos which gives a fairly accurate image
and in turn this gives the client a good feel of the overall
finished product.
It goes without saying that this process equally works via email if travelling is not practical.

To get things right from start to finish is as important to us as it is for our customers.
