Two windows for home in Marazion

Boquio Iron & Glass has just installed the second of two windows in Marazion, near Penzance, for a private commission. The windows, each comprising twelve panels about 240mm x 300mm, pictorially tell a story. One (illustrated) depicts the history of the building showing its many uses including carpenters' workshop, general store, seedsman, paint factory and most recently The Wardrobe, theatrical costumiers. The second window illustrates the hobbies and interests of the client and includes a panel featuring the Marazion town emblem, as well as depicting footpath walking, travel, reading and drama.

Bringing together the modern and traditional the pictures are made from kiln formed glass and fixed together with lead in the traditional manner dating from the 12th century. Each detail of the individual panes is designed and cut from sheet glass before being fused together in a kiln.

New gate latch on the foreshore, Trelissick Gardens

Boquio ironwork at National Trust property

A commission for the National Trust has recently been installed at Trelissk Gardens, Feock, near Falmouth by Boquio Iron & Glass. The old latch on a gate by the foreshore had rusted away and a new one was designed and made. An added feature is the incorporation of the Squirrel motif featured widely by the National Trust at Trelissick.

Spectacular wall hanging

The feeling of the sea and sand is captured in this three piece wall hanging made by Boquio Iron & Glass to commission. Each panel is approximately 340mm x 480mm and comprises several layers of glass individually cut to the design and fused together in a kiln. Small pieces of glass are strategically placed to catch the light and emulate sea spray. The panel is permanently fixed to a wall with high quality purpose made fixings that allow light to fall on the wall behind the glass.
