Rachel Welford specialises in the field of architectural glass.

Her work ranges from drawings and photographs to glass wall panels, windows, light-boxes for interiors, bespoke architectural glass commissions and public art.

Exploring the transparency and reflectivity of glass, Rachel creates artworks with a contemporary aesthetic that interact with light, and change in response to their environment. Sandblasted glass and mirror are layered to create artworks with imagery often based on tree silhouettes or birds in flight.

Current methods of working: Public Commission, Private Commission, Collaboration, Project Management, Community work, Education projects, Training, Others
