The Morton-in-the-Marsh Lanterns
The lanterns combine two directions in which I have taken stained glass over the years. Traditional leaded glass incorporating chunks ofglass,semi-precious stones and beaten metal surfaces and laminated glass using amosaic technique. The first is more sculptural, using elements of jewellery, the second lends itself to a very free,flowing linear style. The Morton Lanterns combine for the first time picture panels and lamps. The pictures show ‘imaginative ideals’ rather than actual representations.
