Stained Glass Angel Wings

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What is it that you like so much that you would want a stained glass design of it? A friend in Norway told me that she loves angel wings in all shapes and materials. Nothing is impossible in stained glass so these angel wings made of three different white glasses and silver-coloured and soldering came about. Send me a message telling me what your favourite thing is, and I sketch a free proposal of it for you in glass.

The Star – Stained Glass for a Tarotist

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What I like the most as a glass artist, is when people come with a picture, photograph or portrait and ask me to make a stained glass version of it. I then sketch a suggestion and the client makes comments and we develop the design in dialogue. Likewise, the price is set according to the complexity of the design and glass selection. A while ago Edwing asked me to make “The Star” in stained glass for a tarotist’s birthday.  I learned that this image is one of the most important cards in the Tarot and made my version of it.

Stained Glass: The Refugee Mother

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In this figure, I see a Syrian mother with her child on their way across the Mediterranean and, at the same time, Mary with the newborn Jesus. In any case, is there really such a big difference?  The idea came to me while reflecting on how to make a more contemporary version of the Catholic madonna that is so often seen and asked for in stained glass work here in Latin America.

Stained glass: Swedish Birds

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

How can stained glass take a step out of the church windows and away from the classical Tiffany lamps? That is the question that guides my glass work, and the mixed media “Swedish birds” is one of my answers. The stained glass wagtail, great tit and blue tit, three birds that are easy to spot outside my childhood window in Sweden, contrast against a piece of untreated tree trunk from Colombia.

My delayed project soon to be ready is an entirely unique Stained Glass World Map. Not even I, myself, will be able to make an identical copy since I haven’t saved my pattern. As soon as the lamp base is ready, pictures and and more information will be published.

Stained Glass: Advent Star with light

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Advent tradition of putting shining stars or candelabra in all windows lights up the December darkness for many Swedes. There are no Advent stars to be found in Bogotá, though, so I decided to make my own. I used veined red and yellow glass and made it possible to open and close it, so that it can hold a small but strong 3W low energy lamp. Maybe it is Bogotá’s first Advent star!

Stained Glass: Lamp with Flower Projections

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I wanted a lamp that’s simple but that makes an interesting projection of light in warm colours on the surrounding walls. I found my inspiration in a photo taken in Claude Monet’s garden in France. I used the same red glass for all the flower pieces but took advantage of the different nuances to cut pieces that would create shadows and a tridimensional effect. The lamp has three completely different sides that all project different flowers on the wall.
