Meet the Maker Maria Barber

Meet Maria from M B Glass Art

Introducing Maria and her stained glass artistry. I had the pleasure of meeting Maria and her daughter Annie at a craft market in Godalming, Surrey in 2015. We had stalls opposite each other and I was captivated by her unique stained glass designs and use of decorative glass. I've been a fan of her work ever since and would like to share her creations with you. I loved hearing her story about how her and her daughter, who at the time had recently graduated with a BA honours degree in illustration and animation, collaborate on the designs. Her work is delicately balanced, with adorable characters and calming scenery.

In Maria's own words... "Our collections feature characters, pictorial scenes and other decorative pieces which are made using a variety of stained and iridescent glass. Many of my designs also incorporate wood, wire, buttons and beads and make a perfect gift or a beautiful addition to your home."

If you are looking for a truly one of a kind handmade gift for the home, then look no further. Her designs will whisk you away to a far away land of whimsical beauty.
