Portrait in Stained Glass

Portrait of Tekla,  © Gareth Harmer 2017

 

I designed and made this piece in January 2017, for a competition and show at William Morris House, Wimbledon. It is a portrait of my friend Tekla, based on a photograph I took especially. Many sections of glass are painted using traditional kiln-fired vitreous paint, and the piece is constructed using lead came.

Soon it will be on display at The Nave Gallery 2017 at St. Lawrence’s Church, Caterham!
