Emma Lindsay

I am an architectural glass artist who graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with a BA(Hons) in Design in 2007.   Since then I have worked in both contemporary glass art and stained glass conservation.   Recent projects include public artwork for Dundee Botanic Gardens and for a bespoke timber framed bird hide in the Brecon Beacons National Park which I also helped to design and build.   My work has also been included in The Prince’s Arts and Crafts Eco House at the 2012 Ideal Home Show in London and Glasgow.

I work mainly in stained glass using traditional techniques such as painting, staining, leading and acid-etching and I am passionate about promoting the art of stained glass as a relevant and valuable contemporary art form.   I am also very interested in the distinctive styles of printmaking and often incorporate this into my work through the use of layering, screen-printing or etching.   I always aim to maintain a high level of craftsmanship in my work while exploring how glass can be used in new and exciting ways.

Nature is a great source of inspiration for me as the vast array of patterns, textures and colours it contains can provide endless artistic possibilities.   I aim to convey a sense of energy and movement in my work through the use of such things as bright colour, sweeping lines or loose painterly brush strokes.

I sell my work at various outlets around the U.K including galleries and art fairs and am also work to commission.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 29 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
