I'm Rachel, the creator behind Beyond Glass.
After long admiring the traditional stained glass works of grand cathedrals and urban architecture in New Zealand and around the world, I took some hands-on courses to learn leadworking and copper foil techniques of stained glass making. And then I was hooked!
What started as a hobby has blossomed into an exciting creative outlet. In the corner of my Wellington garage I cut, shape, and solder beautiful coloured glass together to form unique gifts in the form of wall art, ornaments, sun-catchers and more. I am always trying to push the boundaries of working with two-dimensional glass, to create objects taking inspiration from nature, New Zealand, abstract art and from the colours and patterns of the glass itself.
