Meaghan Posthumus asked herself if there was a way to preserve her moments of inspiration. Through the magic of winter sunlight, she found the answer in stained glass.
“People tend to have impressions of stained glass exclusively in its classic era, but this art form has so many more aspects,” says Posthumus.
While she just started Sanguine Studio earlier this year, Posthumus has already found the art style she’s most comfortable with: “I wanted it to be inspired by art around me, and bring edgy elements to the pieces.”
Most of the stained-glass pieces take Posthumus about five to nine hours to finish, “which sounds like a lot, but that’s how engaging this art is. Each piece is its own art,” says Posthumus.
Apart from the nature portraits, Posthumus loves adapting her favourite characters and topics in popular culture into stained glass. One of her personal favourites is the Sailor Moon Square.
“And the best part of making stained glass is that they shine differently in every season’s light,” shares Posthumus. “These delicate hangings look gorgeous on walls, as well as in front of a window.”
