Two weeks ago I ‘helped’ on a painting weekend run by my friend Linda Norris . Lovely weekend and very inspiring to just be doing with no thought of site, situation or client as is the norm with commissioned glass work –  a bit of a luxury.

A few new enjoyable and effective techniques demonstrated by Linda and tried by the group-  using sand, plaster and wax in the creation of texture. The biggest revelation of the weekend for me was to add the the ingredient of WAITING. To stop and consider, to think about not just what I want to do next, but what the work is telling me it needs.

A lot of playing and not worrying. GREAT!  Some of the pieces of play below.

I am a stained glass artist living and working in the beautiful Preseli hills of West Wales. I've chosen glass as my creative medium for its unparallelled intensity of light and colour. I specialise in traditional glass painting and work mainly to commission in the creation of new work for churches, private and public buildings in the form of windows or some other architectural application. I also make smaller scale bespoke glass pieces using traditional stained glass techniques such as glass painting, staining and etching. Contact me via email at rphillipsglass@aol.com
