I am liza walker . I live in the western algarve near lagos and I have a very unique workshop created from an old water cisterna where I create stained glass art using the Tiffany copper foil method . I have been working with glass for around 6 years.
I'm inspired by colour, light, nature, birdsong , music and books and thoroughly enjoy becoming immersed in design , shape and colour for hours and days on end .
I took to stained glass because it is a very hands on art and I enjoy the cut and construction process involved . There are quite a few stages to creating a finished piece of work starting with a piece of paper and a pencil and ending up covered in flux and lead black. I love every minute ..
