A Portfolio of Stained Glass Windows by John Boyd

John Boyd is a glass artist based in Burlington, Vermont. In his artistic practice, John creates stained glass windows and wall-hanging art pieces that utilize abstract texture and colour, as well as depicting a wide range of figurative subjects.

I really enjoy John’s figurative stained glass works -- throughout his portfolio, the artist tends to focus on a strong central figure, building up a simple background of stained glass panels around that figure. The artist’s pet portraits are reminiscent of glasswork by Kevyn Cundiff, while some of his abstract pieces call to mind pieces by Jewelweed Studios.

I’m impressed by the way that John is able to maintain his own unique style, even when he’s working with a client on a custom commission. The artist also produces stained glass lampshades, which demonstrate the delicate beauty of stained glass in a three-dimensional format.
