Stoney at Derixstudios in Germany

‘I am passionate about colour and coloured glass is after all, coloured light when it’s illuminated.

Colour is so powerful and effects our emotions.

I want to uplift and transform atmospheres through the use of colour in my glassworks and to make a real sense of place with them.’                                      

STONEY PARSONS is an architectural glass artist based in Richmond, London and Kent and East Sussex whose work is often inspired by the natural world.

A versatile and experienced glass artist, her work can be seen in the private and public realms, particularly healthcare.

Working to commission, Stoney seeks to respond with sensitivity to both site and brief. She listens with care to her clients needs and wishes. The design process proceeds in stages from client brief, to site visits, to designs in which visual concepts are communicated with clarity. The client is engaged every step of the way. Stoney believes every commission should complement a building’s architecture as well as its interior design. Her designs are also responsive to the people who work in or inhabit the space. Functionality is important and aesthetic values essential. All commissions are delivered on time and within budget.

Stoney Parsons is also a painter and many of her glass designs evolve from her paintings. She gives occasional glass workshops in her studio as well as at on the Greek island of Skyros.


"I remember that day when I told Stoney of my vision, my ideas. Using her exceptional talent, knowledge of design and passion for her craft, she created something of true beauty. To work with Stoney was a joy and an utterly enriching and rewarding experience." Raymond Blanc
