Nicola Kantorowicz has been designing and making stained glass for over twenty-five years. During this time she has developed a distinctive style, blending traditional techniques with contemporary design.

Her original training in textile design is evident in her love of colour, pattern and texture. She combines traditional glass painting with acid etching and sandblasting to create richly decorative pieces. Much of her work is inspired by pattern in nature and the landscape. Colour and symbolism are used to express spiritual concepts and theological themes in church projects.

From her studio in Oxfordshire she combines working on commissioned projects with producing pieces for exhibitions and Artweek events. Nicola teaches with Ardington School of Crafts, Oxford Summer School and Bucks County council as well as privately.
