Influenced by elements of both architecture and illustration, artist Lesley Green (owner of Bespoke Glass) channels modern design while working with stained glass and glass tile. Her works have traditionally been quite geometric, however recently she has focused on more organic shapes, like in her latest series of succulent-based sculptures. These stained glass works mirror different types of cacti and agave plants, refracting beautiful light patterns through their green-tinted forms.
“I want to push the technical boundaries of stained glass, and love the challenge of figuring out how to solve problems, such as creating open spaces in a pattern,” said Green in an interview with Etsy. “Pattern and color are very important to me. I’m most often inspired by textiles in that respect.”
