Join Angus based artist Maureen from Gallus Glass in the Rural Skills Centre at Murton. Learn all about glass working, the tools and techniques used in this craft and try it for your self.
Having graduated from Glasgow School of Art Fine Art department Maureen Crosbie found herself drawn to the medium of glass. Working in both traditional leaded glass and mosaic, she make pieces for both public and private commissions, trading under the name Gallus Glass. Commissioned pieces are expensive and often place specific, it was this fact that drove Maureen on to make smaller more affordable pieces to suit all budgets. Maureen can be inspired by landscapes, flora and fauna, a person, a period of history and even the possibilities of recycling. She often use words and phrases in her work, finding inspiration from poetry, the Scots language and local places. Sometimes influenced by the glass alone with its huge range of colour, intensity and texture.
Maureen’s work combines many contemporary and traditional elements and can result in a contemporary or traditional piece. She doesn’t like to be limited by the materials that she works with but loves to explore new techniques and stretch the tradition.
