Peadar Lamb is an artist working primarily in the medium of stained glass for over twenty years.
Using hand-made glass, he employs a variety of techniques (some of which have changed little since the 11th century), such as acid etching, painting and staining to create contemporary unique pieces.
After studying in Ireland and Britain Peadar spent a number of years gaining practical experience in Britain, Scandinavia and Italy, before returning to Ireland to set up his own studio.
He specialises in large architectural pieces and small-scale lightboxes, working to commission and for exhibition.
He has shown extensively in his native Ireland and internationally, and his work is in public and private collections in Europe, the Middle East, the USA and Japan.
Peadar is continuing an artistic tradition going back to his grandfather, the painter Charles Lamb, and his great great grandfather, the painter Ford Madox Brown, a member of the William Morris firm of stained glass manufacturers in the 19th century.
My current work is striving for a certain simplicity and purity, that belies the complexity of its composition and technique, more evident in my earlier work.
My ultimate goal is for the finished work to retain the vibrancy and life of the creative process, and transcend the technical aspects of stained glass as a medium.
