Little Meadow Glass Art

My glass work is inspired by geometry and floral motifs, as well as by fine artists and contemporary designer-makers whose works I admire. Stained glass work demands clearly defined lines, glass pieces that are ground into perfect shapes, and a harmonious and precise approach to assembling and composing each artwork. While the materiality of glass resists, heats, fights back and cuts through, and although light takes its own course, illuminating how it wants, what it wants, when it wants and where it wants, I find the contrasting colours and textures of glass aesthetically fascinating, and each piece is as challenging and as inspiring as the next. My creative process starts with the design: when drawing new pieces, I pay particular attention to whether it is possible to cut each glass element, while also imagining how those elements will look once joined by the solder lines. I research colour pallets that will resonate with the theme of the work being developed. This is then followed by glass-cutting, grinding, copper-foiling and soldering. The process of creating copper-foiled stained glass enables a sense of flow and enjoyment that is just as rewarding as the finished pieces. It is by reflecting on the qualities of glass that the work emerges, piece by piece.
