Glass by Bryony is a collection of glass-works, created by English artist Bryony Lane. From her studio on the south coast of Cornwall, Bryony uses coloured and textured glass as a medium to explore the ethereal effect of moving light in glass shadows and reflections. Free-hanging roundels using rare and repurposed glass, bring some of the mystery and magic of stained glass art into our everyday environment.
Bryony’s unique take on stained glass design, uses traditional stained glass crafting methods involving glass cutting, grinding and soldering, to form the final works, which are based on her hand drawn designs.
I grew up in a garden nursery at the edge of the moors, on the border of Devon and Somerset. I had the flood-prone River Exe running through the garden, three feral brothers and a level of freedom and independence bordering on neglect.
After a degree in graphic design and a ten year career as a designer in Brighton and London, I realised I needed to move back to the westcountry to be true to myself as a proper country bumpkin. In 2016, with two small children and while working full-time in an office job, I took a short course in stained glass leading and foiling with the full intention of making it my new design career. I started making glass art daily, and have been learning through making ever since.
