Guardian Article on a Stained Glass Artist

Nice photo essay on stained glass artist Nathalie Hildegarde Liege from Shropshire, England. I like when the show the whole studio, including tools and materials. Doesn't show much of her work though. She does not appear to have a website, but she does have an Instagram account.

When people entered these churches they couldn’t read and so visitors were told a story in glass like a cartoon tells it, with sections in windows. From window to window you follow the story and to me it felt like a contemporary story as I love reading stories told to children using illustrations. I now approach my stained glass as storytelling too. Sainte-Chapelle has a very spiritual side to it as well as a very special site where you play with light to find peace and think of the beauty of life and how we are all part of it as one.
