Baros Glass

Hi, I'm Malcolm. After a 35-year career working as an accountant in the oil business, not renowned as the most creative and artistic background, I retired in 2015.

With time on my hands and looking for new hobbies my wife found a stained glass evening class in Aboyne and enrolled me for the first term. Given my lack of any artistic background I was skeptical that this would be a long-term commitment.

But with the help of an inspirational, patient and committed teacher coupled with a group of enthusiastic and creative fellow students I was hooked. After the initial frustrations of breaking glass and cut fingers I was able to create some passable pieces for display in my home.

Having made a Highland Cow for myself I was surprised that a friend of my wife loved it and asked if I would make another for her. With this boost to my confidence I began crafting bespoke pieces for friends and family.

Through word of mouth I was asked to join a group of artists and crafters exhibiting at last years NEOS exhibition. Selling to strangers is a wonderful creative boost to the ego knowing that people place a value on the work you are producing.

This is the next step in my creative journey
