  Selected Makers

Frans Wesselman

Originally I trained, and worked for many years, as a painter and printmaker. But in 1999, on a visit to Salisbury Cathedral, I was particularly struck by "The prisoners of conscience" window, painted by  Gabriel Loire (in the 1980s). Not having really ever paid much attention to stained glass before, I decided there and then to study the technique and try to make some myself.

One of the things that excited me was the way one can tell stories in glass, where the ephemeral quality of the material, part light, part substance, encourages the mind to make leaps of time and imagination.
I have made many pieces since and keep discovering new challenges, new ways to do things.

I have undertaken many commissions and am always pleased to discuss new ones, but I also have a range of ready-made pieces available.

"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 1 day 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.
