Navin Solanki

Glass/stained glass artist

artist statement

I am a glass artist with 35 years’ experience. Using my Indian cultural heritage, I explore Hindu symbols such as the mandala. Inspired by trips to India, I experience a strong emotional link to colour, dance and ancient arts. I explore colour relationship and texture through experimentation with translucent glass.

I have developed my own resin-based glass practice with a focus on colour and pattern. I limit the use of lead line- using it as a drawing line as well as structural.

My recent work explores lamination of glass, achieving greater depth and strength in the glass.
