Stained Glass Roundel for the Lord Mayor of London, Sir William Russell
I am delighted to have won the Lord Mayor Reflects 2022 Stained Glass Roundel Competition! My design was selected to commemorate the mayoralty of the most recent Lord Mayor of London, Sir William Russell. The contemporary stained glass piece reflects the ambition and creative innovation, inspired by the Lord Mayor's quest for his theme Global UK – ‘The New Future’, connecting our cities through Trade, Innovation and Culture.
It was my pleasure to create the stained glass Roundel for the Lord Mayor and to personally present him with the piece at the wonderful 7th Reflections of The Lord Mayor Gala Evening at the Guildhall Art Gallery in London, which was a truly memorable and special event, one I will always cherish to be part of.
Special thanks to the LMReflects CEO Chris Seow for organising this fantastic annual event which celebrates the ancient office of The Lord Mayor of London. Equally the event offers a wonderful opportunity to bring together various livery companies, and to engage with the creativity of young people, professional stained glass artists and musicians. I am also grateful to the Worshipful Company of Glaziers and Painters of Glass and the judging panel for this wonderful opportunity. You can read more about the event and my inspiration here and watch a short video of me making the Roundel here.

Oculus is my recent piece I really loved creating! Oculus meaning an ‘Eye’ in Latin is a piece inspired by Space, particularly Nebulas and it is my analogical expression of something mysterious and magical. Its appearance changes unexpectedly according to its position to the light and the viewer's perspective.
Oculus makes a perfect addition to your home. . Available in different colours with your personal message engraved on the back. You can get in touch here... I love creating Oculus even more personal and especially made for you.
