Debora Coombs – artist and artisan
I make stained glass windows from a mosaic of mouth-blown colored glass. Each individual piece is hand-painted and kiln-fired several times to fuse the imagery permanently into the glass. Painted pieces are fitted between lead channels, soldered and puttied. I use brushes, tools and materials largely unchanged since Medieval times.
Find out more at my website or watch short videos of me painting glass and assembling windows on Vimeo. Check out my Menfolk exhibition series; and 12 stained glass raccoons for an astronaut in an Airstream trailer.
