Derek Hunt designs glass artworks for public spaces, including libraries, schools, hospitals, theatres, and churches.

He works with sculptural objects which can be hung on wires or fixed to walls, and also makes traditional stained glass. Every project is unique, with a focus on collaboration and community engagement being at the heart of many commissions. 

He graduated in 1984 from Edinburgh Art College in Architectural Stained Glass, and has worked as a professional artist from his Leicestershire studio since then. He is a Fellow of the British Society of Master Glass Painters, an Accredited Stained Glass Conservator with the Institute for Conservation and a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Glaziers.
