The Blake Hotel project was a large job that spanned nearly 6 months. I was sent a few concept sketches by Abi Hancock of Alexander Waterworth Interiors (London), which I translated into lines and shapes that could be produced in this scale, and we worked together on the final designs (you can see a bit of the original concept in the last image). I’d also note it’s pretty unusual to use copper foil on this scale, but I was able to do quite a bit on the technical side of things to make sure these panels were strong enough. This project was a real challenge with our industry’s ongoing OGT/Spectrum glass shortages - since I needed rather large lengths of glass, I was ordering from my main + 2 backup distributors, each of which cuts EACH TEXTURE to different sizes, requires different size orders and charges different rates - not to mention each area of the project had completely different dimensions. I have to give a special shoutout to my main salesperson Laurie at Ed Hoys who fielded a ridiculous number of emails from me in January as I was finishing up the last sections.

The Blake has three different areas of glass: the bar area, which was comprised of 25 small panels inserted into a beautiful framework by Soraghan Woodworking (they also made that lovely bar), two large screens that separate some of the tables made up of 6 very large panels, and a series of 9 medium-sized panels that are mounted against the wall surrounding the kitchen.

Modern stained glass for your home/life

Bespoke Glass is a studio-based business founded in Brooklyn, NY producing customizable and readymade stained glass & tile. All of our glass is cut by hand, using simple hand tools and a mix of centuries-old techniques and a modern approach. We approach stained glass differently than most studios, striving to create objects that are about more than the light coming through them. We try to make things you've never seen before that will fit into your life/space on your terms.

Bespoke Glass is the project of Lesley Green. Originally from Western New York State, Lesley has a BFA from Alfred University and a MSc in Architectural Conservation from the Edinburgh College of Art, and she has lived & worked in Portland OR, Prague CZ, Edinburgh UK and NY NY. She currently splits time between Phoenix AZ & Brooklyn NY.
