Harriet Love is a stained glass craftswoman from Nantwich, Cheshire who trained under Deborah Lowe, a highly respected church stained glass window maker. Harriet grew up in the beautiful Peak District National Park and studied at art college where she attained a first class honours degree in Graphics & Illustration.
Harriet's panels are often improvised and she is inspired by the British landscape and wildlife, especially birds. Harriet takes inspiration from the implied freedom of birds and uses symbolic imagery in her work using perspective and depth of detail as a way of depicting the beautiful world around her.
Harriet's work can be seen in the fabulous Ely Cathedral Stained Glass Museum as well as Haworth, the home of the Brontë Sisters. Harriet also works on numerous private commissions, including portholes for narrow boats. She, herself, currently lives on a narrow boat with her two children.
All panels are unique, hand-painted, fired and leaded up, cemented, soldered and polished. The glass is a combination of man-made, hand-blown and machine. They are waterproof and will not fade. However, they are not frost proof for the garden.
We are thrilled to be exhibiting a selection of Harriet's beautiful stained glass panels.
