Painting With Light

A detail shot from a winter study course showing some pieces of glass and a detail print of an eyeball one student was using as inspiration.

In the Winter Study course Stained Glass Tiling: Quasicrystals and Geometric Solids, Building an Invisibility Cloak, students learned the geometric drawing, design and craft skills needed to build a stained glass window. The course was taught by Debora Coombs, a fellow of the British Society of Master Glass Painters, who has 35 years of experience designing, fabricating and teaching stained glass making. At the end of the term, the students’ finished pieces were displayed in the sunny, third-floor corridor between Morley chemistry and physics labs in the exhibition “Painting with Light.”
