Stained Glass Design and Creation

I have always been fascinated by the spectrum and changing light during the day at different times of the year

The magic of coloured scattered light

My earliest recollections of the fascination of constantly changing light on a blank canvas are from Cathedrals and Minster's. In particular the Wigwam in Liverpool (RC Cathedral of Christ the King) with its lantern tower and tall slit like windows all around the outer walls and Lincoln with gently coloured light painting scudding patterns on the light stone floor.

Enough of all that, it was buying a reclaimed window in Sproughton near Ipswich that got me started in making stained glass for myself, and all because I wanted to match the blue for an interior panel.

Most of my work has been for own use and as gifts to friends but I have produced one-off commissions that are dotted around the country from Ipswich to Pudsey and Southport .
