We loved the idea of commissioning art for our Cotswold interior design projects. Britain has a rich history of engaging artists to produce work for public buildings and private houses. Think of period properties and you think of all the gifted artisans who worked on those properties. Their creativity gave those buildings soul.
We’ve been following Sasha’s career for a while, on Twitter and Instagram. We were so excited to ask Sasha to design and produce some stained glass panels. They were to fill some internal windows for a recent Cotswold interior design project. Stained glass is not just a piece of two dimensional art, the way light reflects through it means that it’s constantly changing with the movement of the sun. We didn’t have sunlight but we added backlighting to the piece to create the idea that the windows were on an external wall and that you were looking into a garden space. Last week we visited Sasha’s studio in Wiltshire to find out more about her design process, inspiration and journey as an artist.
