Jan Langdale (formerly Taylor) Glass Artist
Through careful attention to detail with my dimensional pieces, my aim is to share a respect of the natural world in a tangible way, drawing the viewer into the work of art.
The depth of the pieces is created by using several techniques – using layering and diminishing the size, colour, tone, texture, and translucence on each receding layer. I generally use 6 to 9 layers of glass and once all the individual layers are painted, with hot-fire enamel paints, they are pre-fired (sometimes 2-3 times) and then kiln-cast into solid panels.
I’m inspired by the translucent qualities of glass, colour gradations, curvilinear designs and nature inspired artwork. I also love working to commission.
My background… I began working with stained glass, reverse glass painting and fused glass. My body of work includes stained glass windows, fused glass splashbacks for kitchens & bathrooms, glass wall art and dimensional pieces of glass artwork!
