A UK stained glass window maker has returned to the business after a six year break. Jim Scanlon, who first started producing stained glass in 1990, has opened a new studio at Earlswood in the West Midlands. Earlswood Glass Studios is on the same site where he began his passion for stained glass 18 years previously. Speaking of his return to business Mr. Scanlon said, “I hope to spread the word to old customers and new that I“m back, “full circle“ and ready for new commissions and restorations in traditional stained glass”. The glass maker has previously produced over a thousand stained glass windows including a memorial window for Hagley RC High School in Worcestorshire, one at Birmingham Children“s Hospital and a set of panels for a house in Nagasaki, Japan. Mr. Scanlon is hoping his second spell in the industry will allow him to “keep on producing quality stained glass windows”, while concentrating on the domestic market.
