The Glass Beacon

I’ve been involved in a lot of work recently project managing and making a new architectural glass commission, the Glass Beacon,  for the home of the glass course in Alexandra Road, Swansea where I also lecture.  It’s been a hard task, with a lot of expectation- some I know  and some I am less aware of thankfully but, most of all I just wanted to help make a good thing for the glass college. It’s been a collaborative project and working with my colleagues has been great- so many talented and dedicated people.

The final piece of the jigsaw is the official opening next Friday on the 11th March, as part of a day conference. Details can be seen here: Glass Conference

I’m just looking forward to seeing the scaffolding come down and seeing it properly!

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
