Debora Coombs stained glass
WELCOME to this online portfolio...

I make stained glass windows from a mosaic of mouth-blown colored glass. Each individual piece is hand-painted and kiln-fired several times to fuse the imagery permanently into the glass. Painted pieces are fitted between lead channels, soldered and puttied. I use brushes, tools and materials largely unchanged since Medieval times.

You can watch the latest video of me painting and assembling a portrait of Sir Edmund Hillary. Check out my Menfolk series; and 12 raccoons for an astronaut in an Airstream trailer.

View my religious commissions, including two 25ft windows for Marble Church in NY City and take a tour of St Mary's Cathedral, Portland, Oregon.

See work for homes, public buildings and exhibitions. If you're interested in studying with me check out my 2016 workshops

Thanks for visiting!
