Sally takes commissions in glass. The client’s taste and the architectural context are always carefully considered. She designs the glass to enhance a building and to tell a story, even in abstract form.
The handmade glass that she uses is of the best quality. Sometimes permanent oxide enamel paint and traditional silver stain decorate the surface. Lead is used to hold the glass together. Some of the commissions, both private and public, and gained from the many years of Sally’s practise are illustrated on this site.
She is available for giving talks and demonstrations relating to the making and history of this beautiful medium. For more information on lecture themes and how to book Sally, please see LECTURES.
During April and May one of Sally’s stained glass panels, celebrating the book In Pursuit of Spring by Edward Thomas, is being shown at the Black Swan Gallery Frome. She will be exhibiting and selling panels and prints from her open garage during Bear Flat Open Studios from May 29 – May 31.
