Paul Shaw

Paul Shaw is a designer and maker of stained glass, using traditional techniques and high quality materials to create custom windows and panels for a mostly domestic setting.

Working with clients to create or recreate pieces for a particular historic or other context. A strong strand in his work is an interest in the collection and incorporation of antique and found glass objects into studio and commissioned works. He also works with hot-fused kiln glass to make a range of jewellery and coasters.

Having spent most of his working life as a civil servant he was seconded to the Bromley by Bow Centre in 2002 where he worked with social enterprises and alongside other projects. Having been introduced to stained glass at the Centre he now shares a studio at the site and divides his time between glass and work in projects for youth and older people.
