Creative Glass Invests £40,000

The boom in TV designer homes shows has brought growth to a Tees Valley company which is expected to bring a small number of jobs.Creative Glass has invested around £40,000 in refurbishing its Stockton-based showroom.

"The public is demanding much more in individual design and service," says managing director Tony Campbell.

"I can see us expanding further into people's homes, which now give us our biggest challenges.

"We feature in a lot of the TV shows ourselves and give people ideas they would not have thought about 10 years ago."

Those ideas include glass wet rooms, frameless glass door systems, room dividing screens, glass kitchen worktops and splashbacks.

"Our latest product is what we call photographic glass - room dividers with a transparent photo inside the glass."

This process can be seen in all of its glory in the shape of two glass sculptures on the site of the Battle of Halidon Hill (in 1333), also known as the Great Siege of Berwick.

The 12ft high sculptures represent the exact positions of the English and the Scots prior to the battle - the English at the top of Halidon Hill and the Scots at Witches Knowe - and are composed of encapsulated depictions of the two forces approaching the battle.

The images were created by Design Quarter, of Morpeth, which worked closely with English Heritage and the Royal Armouries Museum to ensure the images were as accurate and authentic as possible.

The buried steel support structures were designed, produced and installed by Teesside Structures, from Middlesbrough.

Defra helped fund the scheme.
