Contemporary stained glass hangings were designed for a charming owner of a private residence in High Park – Bloor Village area in Toronto, who is in love and balance with nature. The client is a passionate gardener with a beautiful garden in the backyard of the house. The goal of the stained glass project was to block an ugly view from the side windows of the sunroom and keep open the view to a beautiful garden in the backyard. The stained and leaded glass panels were designed as decorative hangings to have the possibility to take them if the client moves to a different location. A few years later we packed the art glass panels for the client who moved to a new home on Vancouver Island, BC 

Artistic Line Studio (now called Victoria Balva Glass Studio) caught my eye at the National Home Show. Victoria's work was unusual, creative and beautiful. Needing stained glass windows for my breakfast room, I asked for a consultation. Victoria came to my home to see where the new windows would be placed. She asked many questions to help her understand what I wanted from this project and offered several ideas. We met at her studio where she showed me the various types of glass available and helped me select colours and materials. She provided me with 3 design choices. All were terrific. A few weeks later the windows were installed and were beyond my expectations. Stunning works of art that bring me great joy every day. Victoria and her team are consummate professionals. Her pride in her work and attention to detail shows. The designs are all original and creative. Her choice of materials, exquisite. When I accidentally cracked one of the windows, it was repaired in a way that incorporated the repair into the design. As a client, I felt listened to and my ideas considered. Choose Victoria Balva Glass Studio and you will be looking at a beautiful functional piece of art for many years to come. Highly recommended!
