Wythall Window progress….Sandblasting resists

 

16th March 2014 116Whilst I carry on cutting glass for the Wythall Window, I’ve started applying some glue resists to some of the glass I’ve already cut to prepare to do some sandblasting.

The glue shows in the photos as white as it’s still wet and, when dry, I will sandblast the glass pieces to play with the surface finish and/or amount of colour in some of the pieces by removing a thin ‘flash’ of colour from the main body of glass….

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
