Emma Butler-Cole Aiken

Emma is a stained glass/architectural glass artist based in the Scottish Borders.

I am a stained glass artist making contemporary work using time-honoured traditional methods. As well as making windows, I adapt this primarily two-dimensional medium to create sculptural forms.

I am passionate about colour and how colours interact. I enjoy the way light brings coloured glass to life and the shadows cast by direct sunlight. I am particularly drawn to deep blues. Blue trees and branches have become my visual language for unseen connections and realities.
