Stained Glass

Chris Howitt

I have been working with stained glass for about fifteen years. Initially I went on a one year further education glass where I learned the basics of leaded glass. Following that I went on to work with glass by myself, showing in Adur Art Trail and working on commissions for stained glass panels and windows, until I was persuaded by Sue Wallis to enrol on her stained glass course. Sue was a highly creative and talented artist who was passionate about glass and equally passiona…

I have always been interested in painting and colour. As I am a Christian, I am inspired by God’s creation around me. I am always developing my art in both my painting and my glass work.

A selection of my pastels and glass work is always to be seen at Photal Gallery.

Since the subjects of my work tend to live outside, I have been making some larger scale pieces for the garden. I create my illustrations on found papers, like old books and train tickets. I like to work on weathered surfaces, like w…
