Our typical large leaded glass dome skylight is combined of 2 - 5 thouthands pieces of glass and 7 - 15 pieces of lead. Designed, cut, assembled, soldered, cleaned and reinforced with steel rebars to withstand gravity, heat and time

Here are just few images that will show you the process of leaded glass skylight fabrication

1. We cut glass using our water jet machine for high accuracy of all glass details

leaded glass barrel / curved skylight for a foyer and a library of a private residence in Miami

Our large barrel / curved leaded glass skylights are ready to be sent to our client in Miami. Hopefully no unpleasant surprises while transporting the glass. Eugene takes a good care about packaging. It is a pity that we can not see the skylight after installation. It will look as a jewel after installation!

I am happy to announce that our stained glass dome and our company was featured in the article Skylight Designs Lighten Up by Nancy Matsumoto - The Wall Street Journal reporter. It is a big event for our small company. When Eugene and I started a business we did not have a possibility to buy a professional glass cutter - that was an expensive tool for us. Few years later we got the best machine possible to cut the glass  - a water jet programmable machine with a price tag over 150 000 dollars. When we moved to Canada I just wanted to be an artist  - an average one ... I had no idea that some day we will find our projects published in the largest and reputable publications such as National Post in Canada or The Wall Street Journal in the USA.

Our smaller leaded glass skylight for ensuite bathroom was also mentioned: "The master bedroom ensuite is more luxurious than many bathrooms found in six-star hotels. The elegant ensuite also features a large, leaded-glass skylight."
