This leaded glass barrel vault dome has a few surprises hidden in the lattice and vines, a couple hand painted birds.

In addition we made an oval leaded glass window to match, I will post it next week.

Leaded Glass Dome, 8′-6″ x 24″ ht.

Looking at this dome for a prolonged period of time may get you thinking about….. hockey! To fulfil a special request from our client an avid hockey fan, his favourite NHL team logo has been woven into the design. I can not reveal the team name as it could be contentious here in Toronto.

Airing on Global TV

Monday, May 27th, 2013

Bill is pictured here speaking with Dave Gerry of Global TV for a spot airing tonight during the news hour. Tune in to see behind the scenes footage of Solarium Design including some of Bill’s curated collection from which he draws inspiration.

Dave Gerry

Dave was surprised to learn the techniques of leading glass have changed little over the centuries, all the work is still done entirely by hand; each piece of glass is cut, leaded and soldered together on each side. One of our custom designed domes can have thousands of pieces in it, that’s dedication, and a few nicked fingers.

18′ Dia. Dome

Leaded Glass Dome

Passing through the entry foyer and into the rotunda the eye is drawn up to our 18′ dia dome above. It is lit both naturally by a skylight, and artificially in the evening with energy efficient LED lights positioned for a soft even glow. The design and pattern inspiration is Victorian in nature reminiscent of lace work. Similar to lace work this dome has been crafted entirely by hand.
