Part of ISGNE Glass Lives Week 2020 at North Lands Creative, each episode explores an individual’s personal and professional development along with their passion for working with glass. These conversations were made possible with the support from our funding partners Creative Scotland and Creative Europe.

ARTIST BIO
PINKIE MACLURE

Stained glass artist Pinkie Maclure grew up in a small fishing town in the north-east of Scotland.

The slow, painstaking processes of painting, sandblasting, diamond filing, engraving, layering, firing and repainting allows her time to explore her subconscious; wry observations of the world emerge through her unique artistic approach, using stained glass like a comic strip or collage, tackling contemporary subject matter that both seduces and challenges the viewer. Pinkie has been the recipient of a number of awards and her work has been bought by the National Museum of Scotland, NHS Lothian and a CEO of Bonhams, among others.
