Kate Maestri Architectural Glass Ltd

Architectural glass artist Kate Maestri works to commission on a wide range of private and public art projects throughout the UK and internationally. Working in collaboration with architects and engineers, she designs site-specific installations that are an integral part of the building.

Kate’s artworks fuse modern technology with traditional, mouth-blown stained glass and screen-printed ceramic enamels, to produce the luminous colours that characterise her work. Kate also works on a smaller scale, creating stained glass wall sculptures for exhibition and private commission. These three-dimensional works cantilever from the wall, creating an illusion of floating colour.

Major commissions during her two decades of practice include a 200-metre curved glass balustrade for the Sage Music Centre with architects Foster + Partners, a five storey glass wall for Arlanda Airport in Stockholm and a series of decorative glass walls for the main concourse of Dortmund railway station in Germany. Kate says,”Architecture, whether in the form of an existing structure, or drawings for a new building, is the prime inspiration for my work.”

For large-scale public art commissions Kate’s response as an artist is to create site-specific installations which become an integral and harmonious part of the structure. She documents colours found within the surrounding landscape and these become a palette for the new work. In this way the completed artwork becomes an abstracted reflection of the architecture and landscape in both form and colour.
