Julia Brandis Glassworks
I enjoy expressing myself through natural and interior light. My stained glass panels, lamps and firescreens become more than utilitarian as they release color and form into the spaces that we live in. Their colored lights add emotion to the atmosphere: golden warmth, soothing blues, or vibrant purples. They dramatize interior spaces by projecting onto existing floors and walls. I carefully consider how the glass will look not only under bright light but also during the changes of morning, noon, evening and night. Varying textures, iridescence, wirework and jewels catch the light at many angles to create depth. My designs are not confined to traditional geometric shapes. Their unexpected angles and organic swirls move in and out of the frame, energizing the composition. Taking a creative approach to an ancient medium makes the works satisfying to craft and a joy to own.
