Collection: Rachel Phillips : Stained Glass : Maenclochog

"I spent a couple of early years as the child of an army family swimming in the turquoise seas of Cyprus, going underwater to watch light dance and scintillate on the sand below. Later, back living in  the UK I would walk through trees to see the overlapping, translucent green canopies  created by  bright sunlight. As a teenager I watched Stig of the Dump dramatised on TV and was entranced by his cave -like home made bearable by the fascinating play of light through a wall of glass milk bottles. Now I’m that wierdo taking pictures of their glass of water’s reflection on the table in the cafe- yep, that’s me. 

The interplay of light, colour and form is endlessly fascinating and life-enhancing and working with glass  allows me to create stories with light and colour that make whole new environments to experience in turn.  It’s a material that can be literally filled with light like no other and I particularly love stained glass and work with  it in a variety of ways from my studio in West Wales. 

 I trained in Architectural Stained Glass and have been in practice since 2000 creating commissioned work for a variety of buildings and contexts. Until 2019  I was specialist glass painting tutor  at the Swansea School of Glass and love to help people discover the joys of stained glass and glass painting for themselves through workshops and masterclasses. More recently I been focussing on developing work free from context or architecture as a way of exploring my creativity more fully."
