ABOUT YOUR TUTOR:
After graduating and working in Art and Design, Angie has now specialised in stained glass work for 15 years and has taught the subject regularly to adult classes in Somerset.
Angie’s designs are often inspired by narrative themes, such as folklore, myth and fable.
She enjoys incorporating aspects of nature, feminine forms and decorative detail into her work which is usually figurative. Utilising the colour and texture of each piece of glass, along with traditional glass painting and firing methods, she controls light and balance to create striking images.
I am motivated mainly by visual inspiration found in nature; the symbolic, spiritual and romantic. I am also inspired by a sense of the exotic, mythic and other-worldly in literature, having a strong desire to explore themes of interest and to create images that I see in my minds eye.
Stained glass is very captivating and seductive because of its jewel like qualities. Its therapeutic quality is enhanced by the light that passes through its vibrant colours. It is very exciting to work with these sheets of magical translucent colour that can be manipulated into decorative sections that connect together to portray an image and captivate the eye of the beholder.
To achieve the results I desire; I often spend many hours on the creation of each integral section; slowly building up the subtle qualities of chiaroscuro to achieve an affect. This particular process often requires many firings in the kiln.
