About Eccentric Fingers

Welcome to Eccentric Fingers, designing and hand-crafting an extensive range of stained glass gifts and custom designs, as well as a range of exceptional pencil drawn and painted illustrations. All of our art is created by designer Cathy Graves in her Kent studio.

Ideas can be found throughout our portfolio. However, our main focus is on new designs, with many different sources providing the inspiration for new products - see how your idea can become reality.

Please get in touch to purchase an item or obtain a quotation for bespoke work. I am often asked "how much does stained glass cost?" That's the "how long is a piece of string?" question. Price is individual, depending on design and the number of colours used. Size is the least important factor.

Dazzling glass

Dazzling Glass

While our artist's exceptional creative flair is the basis of our work, developing a wide portfolio of designs based on various sources of inspiration, the dazzling array of glass available and used in their production adds texture, subtlety or boldness and brings the designs to life - click here for a small selection of our glasses and their effects.
