“What goes into the making of a large scale glass commission.”
Sally Scott F.G.E.

Architectural glass engraver and painter. 

 Sally will start by giving us an insight into her career in glass (one spanning over three decades) with a particular focus on her commission to design the new entrance to Ripon Cathedral in 2012. This will be accompanied by a film that follows the stages of this project from start to finish. The talk will also discuss Sally's work on an even larger scale at Leeds Minster and the Roman Catholic National Shrine to Our Lady in Walsingham.
  In tandem to this Sally will introduce her granddaughter Lily Guy-Vogel. Over three years Sally and Lily traveled throughout 

the UK visiting all 48 sites of Sally's glass work in churches and cathedrals. This journey, as well as Sally's career, forms the focal point of Lily's book: "My Grandmother's Glass and Me". Lily will give a few highlights from their trip and an overview of the book, which will be available for sale after the talk, at a cost of £20.
  Sally trained as a painter at The Royal Academy Schools where there was a strong concentration on figurative drawing. This was to prove essential to her subsequent career in glass.
  She taught at  Birmingham School of Art, Hornsey College of Art, Middlesex Polytechnic and West Dean College.
  She has concentrated on large scale engraved and sandblasted glass since  the 1980s.
