Owner and head designer Ms Kirby Sharrock, is a lover of antique glass. She respects the time-honoured tradition of lead lighting, by restoring your cherished, but no longer perfect relics. She achieves this by utilising the traditional methods of the trade. Her artisanal approach is revealed in her ability to perform both classical glass repairs and restorations, and innovative lead lighting designs to your specifications.
Sharrock was introduced to lead lighting and stained glass as a child. Trained by her father, she spent hours in his atelier puttying windows. This gave her a love of the use of old-fashioned wooden tools, of working with copper and steel, and the smell of linseed oil and turpentine. In 2014, she graduated from The University of Sydney, where she learned colour theory and design. Upon graduation, she continued to work in the ateliers of stained glass masters where she honed her craft and developed her unique style.
