Into the Black
Shona McInnes FMGP
Antique glass, acid etched. One day I was idly doodling on some scrap paper whilst listening to a documentary about Neil Young on the radio. The idea grew out of the words of the song: basically I just let the doodle go where it wanted and had a bit of fun experimenting with black and blue glass. My main interest is in site specific architectural glass for secular buildings but I also work extensively on new glass commissions for churches where I enjoy interpreting traditional themes in a contemporary symbolic way. I am not a "painterly" artist and rarely work in a figurative style or undertake restoration.
