about us

Proto Studios Ltd fulfils the requirements of artists, designers, architects and contractors in the field of architectural art glass.

Established in 1989, Proto Studios has pioneered the way forward in making art glass commercially available. Our experience means we understand the needs of each individual client and are experts in satisfying both artist/designer and architect/contractor when working together on a project.
Proto Studios demonstrates diversity in its specialist field whether offering sound advice or a turnkey package from design development through to glazing and installation. Our reputation has grown due to the exceptional quality of our decorated glass and we are recognised as a leading authority in this domain. Our innovative ideas and methods allow contracts to come to fruition quickly and cost effectively.

Our methods of decorating are predominantly screen-printing translucent or opaque enamels and permanently firing the colours into the glass. Etching, sandblasting, slumping, silvering and bonding are also achieved in-house. Safety is paramount especially as many of our commissions are sited in public spaces, thus glass panels are toughened and/or laminated and made into double-glazed units as specified.

Our premises, situated within the M3 and M4 corridor and only 60 minutes by train from London Paddington, offer a wide selection of samples to inspire whilst we discuss your requirements.
