The glass work of Janis Miltenberger emulates natural forms, often blending human components with floral structures. The artist says she first crafts the internal structure of each piece, torching new elements into existence and adding to that foundation. Her works can take weeks or months to finish.
There's a magical quality in the stained glass work of Erlend Tait, a Scottish artist who offers both a contemporary slant to the form and observes its traditions. He packs these works with the symbolism and vibrancy that recall ancient craftsman, yet his figures are representative of the modern, diverse populous.
