Inspired by her grandfather’s talent and love of creating stained glass, Chantelle Elsligar took the opportunity to learn the basics of the art form from him. Although he was dealing with memory issues they managed to share these special moments together, creating a family tradition in the process.
Once Chantelle started experimenting with designs of her own, she fell in love with the creative process. Whether she’s creating a design with a realistic style or something more abstract in nature, she’s having a lot of fun and can’t imagine her life without stained glass art in it.
On this episode, host Angela de Burger chats with Chantelle about why it was important to her to learn as much as she could from her grandfather, what kickstarted her own passion for the art form, the creative process she follows when making a new piece, and how she’s developing her creative voice.
