Stella has worked with stained glass for over 25 years, working both with and for people – in public and private settings, making large windows and small intricate items. She also makes fused glass jewellery using shiny dichroic glass. Her work is bright, fresh and airy, enjoying the flow and sparkle of a beautiful medium.

Stella creates stained glass windows to bring light and joy into the lives of those who live with them. She makes quirky pieces with the offcuts from the larger pieces, wanting to make the most of this wonderful material. She also makes fused glass jewellery which reflects the light off the shiny dichroic glass, and through the base colours, bringing colours and light around your face as you travel through life.
