Annie Rie's Stained Glass

British artist Anna Rie makes beautiful stained glass works depicting pastoral landscapes, using a classic technique you may have never heard of. She tells us a little about her work.

In my work I use the same methods as stained glass painters of the early 14th century. Shades of black Glass Painter’s Stain are applied to coloured glass creating another dimension by controlling the amount of light coming through the glass – almost painting with light.  This painted work is then kiln fired before all the glass fragments are fitted together. The quantity of paint allows enough light through the glass to cast refracted pools of colour, a quality I consider essential for the vitality of stained glass.
