Amanda Baron

Amanda Baron

Amanda Baron graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with BA (Hons) in Architectural Glass in 1992. Post graduation she trained in conservation of medieval stained glass and has worked as a painter and conservator of stained glass for 25 years. Amanda was artist in residence at Edinburgh College of Art, Glass Department, 2011-2012. She was one of four artists to be shortlisted for the Inches Carr Craft Mentoring Award in 2017 and is a Visual Arts Scotland council member.

Amanda creates collections of glass fragments and glass paintings that converse with each other to evoke a sense of place. Each collection reflects her research into and documentation of elements of Scottish islands; the fluid, fluxing edges of an island are constantly evolving as the elements combine to delineate new patterns and colours.These works embody and crystallise Amanda’s response to the craft of the material and the details of landscape. Amanda is passionate about continuing to apply traditional techniques to mouth blown glass to create work that reimagines historical processes and establishes a new audience for stained glass.

This body of work is inspired by a residency at Sweeney's Bothy on the Isle of Eigg. Amanda spent time documenting the light and colour of the sky and clouds, the surface and depth of rock pools, texture of geological forms, and sand patterns created by tidal movement.
