There really is a magical alchemy in creating stained glass...

Marilyn Taylor is a craftswoman working with glass and lead: adopting traditional and contemporary design in her work creating leaded light windows, sometimes using elements of kiln fused glass.

Committed to her craft, each commission is unique, produced with care and attention to detail to enable clients to achieve their vision of enhancing and adding to the history of their home.

Marilyn honed her glass skills at the London College of Building during the 1980s after initially learning some basic techniques at adult education classes.

Glass is a unique and inspiring medium, colours change and evolve throughout the day, shimmering and sparkling in the sunlight with more subtle hues in the evening light. Using her own kiln fused glass where possible in her leaded light construction, she introduces individual qualities and colours which add texture and interest to her work.

Inspired by the Arts and Crafts style, Gaudi for his organic style of architecture and the studio work of Tiffany, Marilyn enthusiastically teaches a range of one day and weekend workshops to enable others to be excited by this wonderfully addictive, time honoured craft.

“People are always intrigued by the traditional techniques, particularly glass cutting and leading and are interested to participate. Students are proud of their achievements at the end of each workshop, having learnt a range of new skills and taking their finished piece home.”
