Ingrid Walker was born and raised in Wick, South Wales. After training at the Bristol School of Art and then working for Bristol Handmade Glass on small and large glass commissions and unique pieces of stained glass art Ingrid started teaching stained glass courses for the WEA and adult education in 1999 and then set up Pyramid Stained Glass in Bristol in 2003. Ingrid moved back to the Vale of Glamorgan in 2006 and after teaching stained glass in Barry and Cowbridge for three years set up a new studio in 2009. Ingrid's work has featured in many exhibitions including Bristol School of Art and St Donat's Art Centre.
Work undertaken at Pyramid Stained Glass uses traditional and contemporary styles of stained glass making including leaded came, copper foiling, etching and fusing. Many pieces of work incorporate two or more of these techniques.
Windows and Panels
I can create bespoke stained glass windows or panels for you, to your specification, such as this seedhead inspired panel in lovely greens and whites.
Repairs and Restorations
If you have a broken stained glass object, such as this poor lamp which I worked on a few years ago, I can restore it to its former glory in the least noticeable way possible.
I am happy to have a go at any ideas you have for stained glass projects, such as these trophies that I created for the Arts and Business Cymru Awards.
I teach a variety of different courses, from Leaded Stained Glass Mirrors to Fused Glass Seascapes. Visit my courses page to find out more.
I love creating beautiful jewellery using glass, in a range of colours and patterns.
Stained Glass and Driftwood Boats are another of my favourite subjects, inspired by the view from my studio!
Birds are one of my favourite subjects to create in glass, such as this cute Great Tit. These were popular on sale at the Wildlife Trust Parc Slip Nature Reserve!
I run stained glass workshops for children's groups and community groups, catering for all levels of ability.
