Drawing at the British Museum

I’m doing research and development for new work and as happy as a pig in muck drawing at the British Museum this weekend – I spent most of my time looking at the Sutton Hoo finds as well as 6th- 9th century Scandinavian artifacts – including a whalebone tablet and bird-motif’d brooches, pictured below. I’m able to do this thanks to a Continuing Professional Development grant from the Worshipful Company of Glaziers!  Watch this space for how it comes together!

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
