A View to Arran
Graham Muir was born in Paisley in 1957, where he continues to live and work.
He studied design at Glasgow College of Building and Printing, graduating with a Diploma in Design in 1979. Since 1979 he has worked as an Interior Designer, Draughtsman, Project Manager, Architectural model maker and has had various other roles, all within the construction industry.has always maintained a keen interest in art of all kinds. He developed a strong interest in stained glass, which he used or encountered often in building projects. He learned enough to start creating his own glass at modular classes at college and with some professional glass businesses.
Eventually Graham followed his instincts and has recently progressed from creating fused glass as a hobby, to a full time fused and stained glass artist working from his garden studio in Paisley.
Grahams explains: No other art medium allows the full intensity of light and colour that glass does and for me glass fusing was a natural evolution from stained glass work. I regard glass fusing as painting with light, creating fully finished durable art with unfading colour.love Scottish landscapes, history and archaeology. Arran I possibly know best and love possibly most of all, as I have been a frequent holiday maker, hillwalker, cyclist, golfer and beach comber from my earliest days.main current project is depicting in fused glass the megalithic monuments of Scotland and Arran with their mysterious atmosphere and imagined function. I am developing many other projects based on Scotland's landscapes and natural history, all to be created in fused glass.
