A seriously lovely round window affair..

In Palmers Green N13 there lived a lovely family with a desire to have a new set of windows.. It was not a pretty sight… …I had to design something special… there were two round windows to be made one on the outside and one to the inside door.. the inside one had to have a clear area to give it a good view from the hallway to the front door.. and we needed a number 86 . which would richly compliment our round windows..

As you can see each piece is numbered so that I can keep track of where my pieces go, and then it was soldered.. And cemented, and scrubbed and polished.. Yay it’s done.. I am very pleased with the way this turned o
