New commissions for the new year

I have several new commissions for the start of the new year.  Its very exciting as the clients have given me a lot of flexibility with the design.

I have just finished this panel, which is for an internal window.  It is based on the amazing starling murmurations on Longstone edge where  I live.

I draw out the design , which I scan into the computer and  then add the colour using the Brushes app on the ipad.  I really like this app as it allows you to add colour behind the black drawing.  You can also easily add textures, and paint in reverse, a bit like glass painting itself.

 

I’m really looking forward to seeing this one installed

Glass Courses

Jane glass painting

I am planning to run a stained glass (with glass painting course) weekend on Saturday June 6th  and Sunday June 7th and 14th from 10-4 at Great Longstone Village Hall.  

We will be making a small painted stained glass panel.

Day 1 – We would learn how to cut glass, look at some simple designs and learn the basics of glass painting using black tracing paint.  We will make some samples and then cut and paint the sections of colored glass for our stained glass panel.

Over night firing in the kiln

Day 2 – Today we make the panels up using lead and solder them together.  We will finish them with stained glass cement, clean up and polish ready to take home.

St Anselm’s Stained Glass Project

After months of hard work, I was really pleased to install the windows at St Anselm’s School, Bakewell today with the help of Rob Heath a brilliant joiner from Darley Dale.windows installedThe project started back in September, when I worked with pupils of the school to design the windows.  We used collage and drawing, each class depicting a different school subject such as music and art

The images from each class were made into a design for a stained glass window.  I then cut and painted all the glass sections that were then fired in a glass kiln.

Here are some details of the windows.  I hope they will be enjoyed by pupils parents and staff for many years to come
