Corporate Gift Ware testimonial:
“For the best and most unique corporate thank you gifts, you cannot go past the beautiful hand crafted bowls from Traditional Stained Glass lead by master craftsman Kim Fitzpatrick.”
Tom Murrell – 8M Media Communications | 24 May 2019
A personal testimonial follows:
“We engaged with TSG to initially look at repairing some stained glass. Over a short period of time Kim struck up a strong rapport and was able to offer more assistance and guidance than we thought possible. In the end we elected to commission a new set of windows, and I am glad we did. Kim listened to our requirement in both style and budget and was able to design a set of windows which enhances our house more than we could have possibly wished for. It has become a highlight of our house renovation and an incredibly worthwhile investment. Would highly recommend to anyone interested in engaging with proper craftsmen and producing something special which will be enjoyed for years to come”

Just wanted to say thanks so much for all your work in both repairing the old glass and matching the new. It’s beyond my wildest dreams!
Will definitely recommend your company to everyone!

Kim and Simon from Tradition Stained Glass have created a glorious front door window and surrounds.
I am absolutely gob-smacked by the beauty of the glass masterpiece they have created. Simon helped us with the design and choice of glass colours so that we got exactly what we were hoping for. I will recommend them to as many people as possible.Their business has been running for a hundred years and the tradition has passed down through three generations. I can’t thank them enough for their wonderful craftmanship. It has added a lot of value to our home and I will continue every day to feel the joy I felt the first time I saw the result. We cant thank-you enough.
Penny and Peter.

Dear Kim & Simon
The stained glass that you designed and created for me gave me exactly what I wanted and more and that the professionalism of your company was exemplary,
I wish to thank you for your prompt service. We appreciated your honesty and the support you gave us in being able to match the glass to be replaced. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to everyone one we know.

Simon fitted the windows today as arranged. I would like to say they look fantastic, Sam and I are very pleased with them. From the design, choice of glass and fit out, we found you guys to be very professional and experts in your field. Simon was confident and obviously experienced in what he does, a credit to your company.
To me looking at the windows now is like looking at a bit of artwork. You guys have made a real feature of these windows which were otherwise quite boring to look at.
Once the weather is better I’ll take some photos and send them through. I also would like to apologise for getting the measurements wrong, Simon was able to work around it and it wasn’t a drama.

the leadlight door is beautiful, and last night with the hall light behind it looked really lovely with all the different textures of glass.
I have been meaning to touch base with you some for some time regarding the work you did at our house in Mt Lawley.
Your work is, quite simply, the pride and joy of our home.
We cannot thank you enough for creating a stunning door-set, which is indistinguishable from the original fan-light we asked you to base your design upon.
The result is both period-authentic and timeless.
Your commitment to detail and customer satisfaction were excellent, and really set a high bar compared to any other trades we’ve dealt with during the course of our renovation.
We’ve gladly referred you to several friends of ours, and indeed, to mere acquaintances. In fact, last weekend while buying a fireplace from a federation home on Bulwer St, I provided your details to a Gumtree vendor who was about to embark on a renovation of her own. The fact that we know you’ll provide them with the same great service we’ve received, is reassuring and a source of pride for us.
Thank you once again.
Thank you again for the beautiful stain glass windows designed and crafted for our family crypt at Karrakatta. We are all very happy with your service and product and will be sure to recommend you to family and friends.
Kim, as requested some feedback and only too happy to provide it.
Why would you be unsure about working with someone in our industry?
Q1, Not sure that the outcome you get at the finish is actually what you wanted to achieve
What made you decide to work with us?
Q2, Tried another vendor, they did not seem interested in our business and made no absolutely attempt to help us with a design as TSG have done from the start.
What specifically do you now love about buying from us?
Q3, The involvement in helping us choose a design and then following thru and showing us what we will get before starting, the enthusiasm and help was very pleasing, on time to measure up, manufacture and install, quality of workmanship and finish was extremely pleasing. A pleasure to work with.
Who would you recommend us too?
Q4, Any person who sees the work that has been done at our home or tells us they are planning similar works, would not hesitate to direct them to TSG and am sure they would feel the same as we do with the outcome.
Kim to you and Simon, thanks for the great work you have done for us and without any worries or headaches.
Kind Regards and Much Appreciated
Keith and Dale Manson
“Kim skilfully designed and oversaw the installation of five stained glass windows to our house.
The rooms in which the glass was installed now give optimal privacy plus add the ‘wow factor’ to each room. The stained glass windows are aligned with the aesthetics of a house that is over 100 years old and we still, many months after their installation, appreciate their unique and timeless beauty”.

To Kim and Simon,
the glass looks absolutely fantastic – it has exceeded our expectations!
Also really appreciate the installation work that Simon did – very impressed.
I’ll send you through some photos when it has had a final coat of paint, but it already looks beautiful.
Many thanks for you skills and patience!

Kim & Tanya,

Hi there Kim,
The repair work to my two doors with damaged lead light inserts was carried out very proficiently. I would recommend your company to anybody seeking similar work. I found your company on the internet and got a quick response to my enquiry.
Andrew Long Como.=
A note to say thank you to you and your guys for an amazing job restoring my leadlights. It has exceeded my expectations.
Simon has just finished installing it and I cannot stop admiring it. Thank you again.
I will definitely be recommending your services in the future.
We love the glass and how you melded the old with new! Thanks so much!
I would recommend Tradition Stained Glass. They responded very promptly to my enquiry, as did the other stained glass repair companies. The stand out difference for me was the recommendation of minor changes to the supporting structure of our broken stained glass window. Their expertise not only repaired my stained glass in my front door, but they improved it. They did a great, professional and prompt service at a reasonable price.
What did you think of the Custom Homes article?
If only your work of art in the parlor had been installed …
A few thoughts spring to mind …
The dramatic impact of light through glass … it can create an atmosphere, invoke memories from the past, ignite new possibilities and set the stage for mystery and intrigue. But only a highly skilled artisan can compose and evolve the journey from concept to completion. Kim Fitzpatrick has been pivotal in drawing on his extensive knowledge from ancient glass glass-smiths of bygone times to restore my majestic antique French Cathedral stained glass window to its current magnificence. It holds center stage in the creation of my Castle in the Sand, and from this beautiful icon, we set the direction for more works of art in glass through the rest of the house. Kim took my ideas and brought them to light, and even when my ideas had never been done before, he went where no-one had been before and the results were exactly how I had envisioned …. stunning and unique!
Words don’t suffice … pictures tell a thousand words, and even more in real life.
I know my home would not have the same depth of ambience and atmosphere if not for our amazing works of glass art.
.. .Maybe lots of thoughts 💟
Thank you so very much for our amazing window! We absolutely love it. Thanks for making the whole process so simple and professional and easy. We can’t wait to move in, so we can enjoy your beautiful artwork everyday!
We found the installer to be excellent. He was proficient and polite.
Our experience throughout the process of selecting a design and having the window installed was excellent.
Most importantly we are thrilled with the window itself. We have had so many people say to us how lovely it is, and what a perfect way it is to remember my beloved mum.
Through this image you have somehow captured what my Mum was really like, and in some small way she continues to be a presence within our church family.
Thank you so much,
Thank you for my beautiful windows they look amazing, the colours are perfect I love them. Your offsider and your daughter were really great.
Feeling really happy.
I wanted to let you know that now that I have been in the home for a few weeks and I love the glass, and hence the entry, more and more each day. I painted the inside the steel blue and it looks amazing! It brings out totally different colours in the glass from the outside perspective. It is perfect coming down those stairs and every time seeing that piece of art.
Very happy customer and so glad I saved up and did it. Getting lots of comments of course!
Hi Kim and Tanya,
We love our new door.
It’s just exactly what I wanted. The light coming through to the hallway lifts the whole front of the house.
Thank you so much!
I am happy to report the window was safely installed this morning.
It looks absolutely unbelievably breathtaking and the photos attached (taken with an iphone) don’t even begin to do it justice – I almost cried it is so beautiful.
All the builders and tradies stopped in their tracks when they saw it and wanted to take photos!!
The bathroom is not finished yet (and is much lighter than it looks here) but the slots you can see in the wall beneath the window will be small shelves of the granite and the taps have crystal handles.
I will take some better photos on the weekend when the light is hitting it and with a proper camera and will take some more in a couple of weeks when everything else is finished.
A million thanks…it was worth the wait.
I just wanted to say thank you for the magnificent job you did with the window, it is truly a beautiful piece of art that will be displayed proudly at the College.
We have had the pleasure and privilege of dealing with Tradition Stained Glass over a period of approximately 24 years
Their stained glass and leadlight glasswork is second to none, as is their service, customer rapport and attention to detail.
We are absolutely delighted with our latest works of glass art, one is a magnificent picture window of Australian parrots and Australian flora, the other a beautiful array of Iceland poppies, complementing a bifold door.
We have had many other magnificent traditional leadlight windows installed, and look forward to the completion of our next project which is now underway.
We would highly recommend Traditional Stained Glass for any leadlight or stained glass projects you may be contemplating.
We are so thrilled with our window and waste a lot of time just looking at it and have had many favourable comments about it. Thank you.
The young man who installed it was a very pleasant person too.
My only regret is that we didn’t have a bigger window!
Our power was turned on yesterday and we saw the front door back lit for the first time last night…… All I can say is….WOW, WOW and more WOWs….
The stained glass looks fab – the colours are brilliant!!
You will love it……
We are still being overwhelmed with our 5 beautiful windows especially when the sun shines through them throwing off beautiful shades of colour into the rooms. Simon was extremely professional and left everything neat and tidy.
What can I say … wow! The table is completely amazing, and I couldn’t stop looking at it last night. The glass has come up perfectly, and complements the base in the most magnificent way. True artistry, and will surely give us many years of enjoyment. The only thing now … I’m not sure I will be able to live with it sitting outside … we are about to renovate the house, and I suspect it might have to take pride of place as our main dining table, with the rest of the house built around it!!
We would like to take the opportunity to let you know how thrilled Tracey and I are with the beautiful stained glass work you have done for our home.
From the outset, when we first visited your studio and looked through the portfolios, we have been very excited by the prospect of having one of your art works in our house. We were both very impressed, and reassured, by the way you put us at ease with your approach to establishing the commission. Your willingness to listen to our ideas, and use these to guide us through the various examples of your work, left us confident that once we had decided on a thematic idea, we could trust you to produce an original design of exceptional quality that compliments the environment in our home beautifully.
Can’t wait to see it in the morning.
The window looks amazing, thank you so much. Excellent work!
Can’t wait to see it in the morning.
These panels are amazing, they have truly lifted our home. You have matched the colours and textures perfectly to the original fanlight, and recreated the pattern in the side panels which I didn’t think would be possible – we love the blue orb in the middle of each.
I am in awe of your skill, they are truly wonderful.
Thank you very much.
Everyone has just left. Thanks so much for a brilliant job, for fitting us in at short notice and for finishing when you said would. Your efforts in this have been exemplary and are very much appreciated
Just sending you a quick e-mail regarding the stained glass that you had put in. We can’t tell you how pleased we are with them as they compliment the house beautifully. Thank you so much for the effort, as we do realise the amount of pressure we put you through. Never-the-less, they are so beautiful to look at and your staff were excellent as well.
You and your team are true artisans! The entry door and bathroom window are magnificent!!! These will be treasured for generations to come. I can’t wait to show Sam Theo (Architect) to see them installed!! Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity. I am most grateful. You are a STAR!!!
We’ve been watching the glass changing this evening as the light outside changed. We love our windows, thank you. We didn’t expect they would change so much as the outside light changed. We also didn’t anticipate the little bits of glass that sparkle in the light – they look beautiful. You were right, you really need to see them in situ, and the windows are even better than we both expected.
For transforming my house into a place of beauty. I used to live in a 50 year old house with large rooms & big windows with ocean & bush outlooks. When I downsized to somewhere small & modern I was impressed by the cleanliness & labour saving design, but two of the bedrooms had privacy windows making the rooms seem even smaller with the doors closed. Kim drew up some window designs, & when installed, the rooms became a delight appearing larger with the different coloured lights shining through, yet still retained privacy. Next on the list was the bathroom’s huge cloudy window adjacent to the spa, my bathroom now resembles a desirable magazine advertisement. Then came the western facing front door which led into a dark hallway. A large section of wood from the door was removed by one on Kim’s craftsman & a beautiful original piece illustrating Kim’s artistic talent was inserted. My hallway is now a much lighter & more pleasant place to be in, reflecting the deep rich colours used in this piece, afternoons are now something special with colourful ever changing reflections lighting the area. Everyone who has viewed all this work, especially the front door is amazed & impressed by the skill & artistry displayed.
Thanks again Kim,
