Magda Gay

I have been working full-time as a professional stained glass artist since 2016 in my garden workshop in North Yorkshire. I am inspired to design and make organically driven stained glass pieces, to introduce more colour and movement into gardens and homes. I use wire and wooden or metal bases to enable my work to hang or stand in situ.

I use traditional lead came and copper foiling techniques, making a wide range of work including large scale garden sculptures. I design and create my own ideas, as well as responding to gallery led demand and commissions, including work for some National Trust shops.

Training
I love working with stained glass and have attended numerous glass courses in a number of different colleges over the last 20 years including several at the National Glass Centre in Sunderland .
