I was given a piece of Tim Carter 's work as a present. I was thrilled!
Tim makes beautiful etched glass table lights which have very delicate and intricate decoration. See photo.
I already have a large piece of Tim' s work, a lovely fern, which is again sandblasted and is wall mounted on slate but without the light. These more recent pieces are lit by a small L. E. D light and that brings a different dimension to the work. Not only can you see all the beautiful fine detail but it gives it a magical atmospheric feel.
I have known Tim for several years and am aware that he is very gifted in many crafts. I have used him to make a stained glass panel, to repair stained glass Victorian door panels. He works meticulously, thoughtfully and sympathetically through many disciplines.
These latest lamps are a step to a higher level in craftsmanship and design.
Tim is very gifted and always produces sensitive and aesthetically pleasing work.
What a lovely present!
Dear Kate, Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. I've enjoyed making and repairing work for you over the years and so glad you were thrilled with the latest engraved glass and wood table light sculptures. It's a real confidence boost!! Best wishes, Tim.
Tim recently repaired the stained glass in our front door and side panels. He took them away to his workshop and said he would do his best to match the glass as best he could. I was a little apprehensive about how different the glass might look but I needn't have worried. I look at them now and cannot tell for sure, which bits he changed. Tim's work is incredibly neat with fantastic attention to detail. He kept me informed of progress and always turned up when he said he would. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Hi Liz, Thank you for the lovely review and so pleased you are happy with the stained glass repairs to your front door.All the best, Tim

Tim Carter is a highly professional restorer of traditional leaded light windows (amongst other talents). He has undertaken a great deal of work over many years at Rockingham Castle. He has become a trusted contractor, carrying out work of a delicate and sensitive nature to windows of great antiquity. He is very thorough and conscientious, and I cannot recommend his skill highly enough.

Rolls-Royce Science Prize / Eden Project Environment Award. We approached Tim with a problem and some ideas when we required a trophy to be produced for presentation at a prestigious company event. Throughout the process, Tim was positive and supportive, his experience and skills really making a difference. Tim mixed materials and disciplines to produce a unique piece, delivered on time to a tight schedule. Needless to say the finished article was stunning.
Tim repaired Victorian stained glass panels in our front door very sensitively and carefully. He is an accomplished professional craftsman. He also made a piece of stained glass to be incorporated in a new conservatory. This again was done brilliantly with excellent leading work. A beautiful piece!
I wish we had had more done. We also have a piece of sand blasted glass with a fern design. Very intricate and beautifully made. Tim is an excellent artist and craftsman. I recommend him wholeheartedly.
We commissioned a wall sculpture from Tim. Based on some loose ideas we provided, he came back with several designs that we were able to refine before making our choice. The final result was beautiful. We have been so delighted that we have been back to buy one of his light sculptures – I love the tree and it looks amazing when it’s lit. Tim also made us a beautiful glass wall shelf for one of our wedding presents. We cannot recommend Tim highly enough – he is very helpful & friendly, and his work is beautiful.
Tim did a really high quality job at a very fair price on Victorian stained glass panels in the front lobby of our house. The panels had sustained several areas of damage: Tim inspected them, made helpful suggestions on repair and future protection of the glass and then carried through the work efficiently and on time. We were very pleased with the high quality result and would certainly employ Tim again on similar work.
Great service and workmanship. Tim is very pleasant and professional. Highly recommended.
