Acid etched antique glass, plated, painted and silverstained leaded glass. In this small panel I have tried to epitomise my approach to stained glass design. The pattern of lead lines always comes first, overlaid with rich veils of colour. Any figure should have vitality and movement within a two dimensional plane and be framed, to anchor it within its architectural setting. An architect"s daughter I have enjoyed a lifetime"s exposure to historic buildings and ecclesiastical art which has influenced my study of classical glass painting and lead work. Attending master classes and a post-graduate course at Central St. Martins, my work is characterised by graphic use of lead lines and richly coloured antique glass.
