Alan Baker Associate

I explore the richness of stained glass through using a variety of techniques, including casting and slumping glass, sandblasting and etching, painting with enamels, lustres and gold, to produce free- standing screens, panels and windows.

I work with detail in both traditional European Styles of stained glass and creatively interpreting Islamic art into unique designs. I also incorporate these elements into windows that illustrate traditional stories and folktales. I believe that windows should convey a message and tell a story.
