OUR STORY & PHILOSOPHY

MB Bespoke Glass is based near the beautiful Gunknowe Loch, Tweedbank in The Scottish Borders.

Maureen Brand, founder and owner of MB Bespoke Glass, is passionate about the art of producing, restoring Lead Lights and Copper Foiled items made with Art Glass.        

 

What began as a hobby in a garden shed has now developed into a thriving business in a fully functional workshop and studio where Maureen handcrafts beautiful individual products that will delight their owners for many years.

Maureen is not precious about her craft and frequently shares her knowledge by holding Demonstrations and Beginners Workshops on 'The Tiffany Method' of using copper foil instead of lead to produce her products

Having a keen interest in The Natural World inspires Maureen when choosing a design to work on, this is noticeable  when looking through her portfolio. She uses different types of Art Glass to bring her subject to life, colours glow and reflect, taking on a different profile in differing lights.

Customer service is extremely important to Maureen and she has been known to remake a commissioned piece if unhappy with the finished design. When making a commissioned piece, especially a window panel or piece that is meaningful to her customer, Maureen will collaborate fully with them to ensure that the end product is  special and bespoke to them.
