The Tutor

Jo Munford is a professional stained glass artist creating original glass art from her studio in Netley Abbey, Hampshire. Jo works mainly to commission mixing traditional stained glass techniques, both lead work and copper foil with contemporary concepts to create original bespoke glass art work, windows, interior and exterior sculptures and yacht replicas. Her pieces are a fusion of glass, metal and foraged wood. Each glass piece is inspired by the wood, structure or space it will inhabit. Glass choices compliment the designs encompassing beautiful bubbles, streaks, striations, patterns and colour fades.
