Tony Gee opened his first leadlight studio in 1979. In that small studio in Queenstown he developed his skills in the glass style commonly known as Tiffany Glass, or copper foiling to those in the trade. In 1982, Tony’s youngest son Anthony (then a boy of 10 years old) revealed the same passion and talent as his father. The two worked mostly on Tiffany style lampshades, terrariums and leadlight windows.
At the age of 18 Anthony went to work with his father in a studio setting, supplying quality leadlight windows to the public and construction industry Australia-wide. In 1992, they opened their own leadlight studio in Semaphore Park.
In 1992, they opened their own leadlight studio in Semaphore Park. In 1994 Radka joined the team and has been with the family business for over 20 years. Initially trained under watchful eyes of both Tony and Anthony, Radka is now a leadlight specialist in her own right, repairing, restoring and creating beautiful stained glass and leadlight windows.
Full management and ownership of the studio was taken over by Anthony in 2010 upon the official retirement of Tony, who, retirement notwithstanding, remains active in the business to this day. The business expanded in 2000 to cater for a growing demand for high quality, artistic and individualised glass splashbacks. Examples of the many and varied installations in this exciting area can be found in our galleries.
Anthony’s eldest son Michael came to work in the business in August 2012. At that time the business had just secured the contract to restore all 244 leadlight windows in the historic Adelaide house Carrick Hill; suffice to say, Michael quickly found his feet in the trade. He brings a modern and artistic approach to the business which stands us in good stead for the future.

When you buy quality Australian-made glass, you can rest assured that the resources and materials purchased are of the highest quality, ensuring durability and safety for generations to come.
When researching your next leadlight repair, restoration or creation it is important to understand the difference between genuine and artificial leadlighting. Too often growing industries bring artificial products to the marketplace to cut costs and increase profitability. We believe that these products reduce the credibility of our art form; they are less durable, less attractive and cost significantly more to repair or replace, and in some cases even purchase. We use genuine leadlighting materials and techniques at all times.
Fun, creative and social, our leadlight workshops introduce you to the tricks of the trade. No experience is necessary! Run by highly skilled and experienced leadlight artists with a real passion for the craft, our 6 week beginners course is designed to teach students the basic techniques commonly used in commercial leadlight studios. More advanced classes are available for those who want to develop their skills further following completion of the initial 6 weeks
