An online conversation between the foremost practitioner of stained glass, architectural artist Brian Clarke and esteemed architect Sir Norman Foster.
Clarke and Foster are longtime friends and fruitful collaborators, working together on notable architectural art commissions for locations around the world, including London’s Stansted Airport, the Al-Faisaliyah Complex in Riyadh, a landmark work in the development of modern stained glass, and the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation in Kazakhstan.
In Foster’s words, Clarke “uses buildings as a canvas” and his spectacular stained-glass artworks “impart a wonderful sense of poetry to a space.”
The conversation was chaired by art critic, curator, and artist Robert Storr, and was recorded on Nov 13, 2020, to celebrate Clarke’s exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York.
