ABOUT THE STUDIO
Experience
With 30 years of experience in the commercial arts, Enda Hannon founded his own stained glass studio in 2004. He works in leaded and stained glass, copper foiled glass, painted glass, zinc lights, etched glass, sign painting and murals. A skilled artisan and craftsman, his work has travelled the world, with clients in the US and Europe as well as his native Ireland.
Styles
Enda Hannon Studio creates a wide variety of stained glass designs - from the traditional to the modern, from classic and elegant to original works. Many clients request work in the style of the modern masters, such as the Scottish designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh; the Americans Louis Comfort Tiffany and Frank Lloyd Wright, and Ireland's own Harry Clarke from the Tower of Glass. The Arts and Crafts movement is the influence for many contemporary lead lights with moulded lead accents. Traditional Victorian door and sidelights found throughout the city of Dublin are perennial favourite’s. Fanlights made in the original way with zinc and handmade lead are a specialty of the studio. This disappearing art is a vital part of the lovely Georgian architecture that Dublin is famous for.
Projects
The studio handles both residential and commercial projects. Maintaining the traditional style of the doors and windows in and around Dublin is a mainstay of the studio's work. The Studio also manages large commercial projects including: traditional Irish pubs exported to the US, local restaurants, nursing homes and other commercial properties with large scale size requirements and schedule commitments. Additionally, Mr. Hannon creates original pieces on commission. The Studio works with clients directly, visually imagining the best design for your home or business.

stained glass
noun
noun: stained glass; modifier noun: stained-glass

coloured glass used to form decorative or pictorial designs, typically by setting contrasting pieces in a lead framework like a mosaic and used for church windows.
"stained-glass windows"

 

The term stained glass can refer to coloured glass as a material or to works created from it. Throughout its thousand-year history, the term has been applied almost exclusively to the windows of churches and other significant buildings. Although traditionally made in flat panels and used as windows, the creations of modern stained glass artists also include three-dimensional structures and sculpture.

Modern vernacular usage has often extended the term "stained glass" to include domestic leadlight and objets d'art created from came glasswork exemplified in the famous lamps of Louis Comfort Tiffany.

As a material stained glass is glass that has been coloured by adding metallic salts during its manufacture. The coloured glass is crafted into stained glass windows in which small pieces of glass are arranged to form patterns or pictures, held together (traditionally) by strips of lead and supported by a rigid frame. Painted details and yellow stain are often used to enhance the design. The term stained glass is also applied to windows in which the colours have been painted onto the glass and then fused to the glass in a kiln.

Stained glass, as an art and a craft, requires the artistic skill to conceive an appropriate and workable design, and the engineering skills to assemble the piece. A window must fit snugly into the space for which it is made, must resist wind and rain, and also, especially in the larger windows, must support its own weight. Many large windows have withstood the test of time and remained substantially intact since the late Middle Ages. In Western Europe they constitute the major form of pictorial art to have survived. In this context, the purpose of a stained glass window is not to allow those within a building to see the world outside or even primarily to admit light but rather to control it. For this reason stained glass windows have been described as 'illuminated wall decorations'.

The design of a window may be abstract or figurative; may incorporate narratives drawn from the Bible, history, or literature; may represent saints or patrons, or use symbolic motifs, in particular armorial. Windows within a building may be thematic, for example: within a church - episodes from the life of Christ; within a parliament building - shields of the constituencies; within a college hall - figures representing the arts and sciences; or within a home - flora, fauna, or landscape

halcyon days

From Latin Alcyone, daughter of Aeolus and wife of Ceyx. When her husband died in a shipwreck, Alcyone threw herself into the sea whereupon the gods transformed them both into halcyon birds (kingfishers). When Alcyone made her nest on the beach, waves threatened to destroy it. Aeolus restrained his winds and made the waves be calm during seven days in each year, so she could lay her eggs. These became known as the "halcyon days", when storms never occur.
