Amanda Baron

Glass Artist

Edinburgh, Midlothian


glass painting, stained glass, collections


£300 — £1200


For 25 years I have worked as a conservator of stained glass. Close examination and repair of decorative fragments of painted stained glass has made me focus on utilising individual pieces of glass to create new works.
My ideas are formed by the details in landscape in order to build a narrative of place. I am passionate about continuing to apply traditional techniques to mouth blown glass to create work that reimagines historical processes & establishes a new audience for stained glass.
