Stained glass with metal overlay and Transformed Photography
Anne Ryan Miller creates unique stained glass pieces. Over the last 20 years she has developed an unusual metal overlay technique that allows her to do highly detailed work. Her favorite subjects are landscape and wildlife scenes.
The work I have been doing in the flat glass medium expresses my deep love for the natural world. Rather than expressing the negative qualities, I choose to remind us all of the ethereal and beautiful, the mysterious and subtle aspects of nature.
By using a metal overlay technique, I can hand-cut very intricate designs. Using landscape and wildlife motifs, I create a pictorial effect. By applying the metal on the front and back of opalescent glass, I can achieve an enormous amount of depth. By allowing the natural light to diffuse around the metal from the backside, I can obtain a shadowy, misty effect, allowing the front to display a tantalizingly strong silhouette.
There is a mystical quality to glass. It is a frozen liquid that acts like a solid. It transmits light. The mood of each piece changes as the sun and seasons change the natural light. Sometimes it is very active, at other times seemingly reflective and passive. You might never tire of a piece of glass hung in natural light. It will appear different each time you see it. It will change as the seasons change, constantly offering you a new view.
