Stunning art in glass by the talented West Sussex artist Elizabeth Lamont on display at Nymans.

You can view and buy some of Elizabeth Lamont’s beautiful glass pieces in the shop at National Trust, Nymans this winter.

Elizaabth LamontElizabeth lives in West Sussex and her glass work is very much rooted in the local area.  She is delighted to display a collection of her work based on the gardens and house at Nymans, the National Trust property “I have loved drawing on the richness of Nymans gardens for my glass paintings. I look forward to exploring further strands of the Nymans story as I add to the collection over the next few months”.

Elizabeth Lamont says “Glass is my passion. I find that glass is the perfect medium to convey atmosphere and to capture ephemeral effects; from the shifting sunshine in bluebell woods to the magic of a moonlit garden”.  She uses mainly “antique” glass, which has a variety of colours or shades of colour within it, and traditional stained glass paint. It often takes at least four or five days of intensive work on the one piece to achieve the results you will see in her work. She says “I paint the glass with a long, thin, rigger brush and scrape paint away with a fine bamboo stick, creating textures with tools ranging from sponges to doyleys. The paint is kilned at different stages as the work develops to achieve a high level of detail and depth. Once fired, the paint becomes an integral part of the glass”.

The Nymans shop is open from 10am  – 4pm  every day all year round except Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
