London based artist Kate Maestri specialises in the innovative use of contemporary architectural glass. She works to commission in collaboration with architects and engineers across a wide range of site-specific projects.
Her work explores the use of structural and three-dimensional, contemporary stained glass. The intent is to create an environment in which the colour, light and form of sculptural glass works in harmony with the architecture.
Recent projects include a curved glass wall for a major commercial development in Portman Square, London, a stained glass atrium for Liverpool John Moores University and a glass pedestrian bridge for the new Wolverhampton Travel Interchange.
Previous commissions have included a ten-storey glass tower for Wilton Plaza, London, a curved glass balustrade running through the main concourse of the Sage, Gateshead and a stained glass pavilion for the Environment Agency in Bristol.
Clients include Land Securities, British Land, the Kings Fund, NHS Trusts and local authorities, and she has collaborated with such architects as Jestico + Whiles, Foster + Partners and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
“Kate Maestri's work is in the tradition of Josef Albers and those who have followed on afterwards in the exploration of interactive colours.”
