Radiance Stained Glass
The creative heart of Radiance Stained Glass is our designer/maker Mandy Shand.
Mandy read for a B.Sc in Design and Technology at Brunel University, graduating with an Upper Second and Qualified Teacher Status. She taught Technology to 11 - 18 year olds in London and the West Country, rising to the position of Head of Faculty in a specialist Technology school.
After having children, Mandy left teaching to become a full time mother. Her interest in stained glass began while teaching but it was the family relocation to Scotland that gave her space to set up a glass studio and time to develop her craft.
Mandy enjoys employing traditional stained glass construction techniques as she values the link with the past whilst designing for contemporary tastes. Since moving to the 'Wee County' of Clackmannanshire, its beautiful scenery and seasonal colour has inspired Mandy's work. She established Radiance Stained Glass as a commercial enterprise in 2013.
Outside her family and stained glass commitments, Mandy is a Justice of the Peace in the Seriffdom of Tayside, Central and Fife.
