Aidan Mcrae Thomson

Stained Glass Artist


Born in 1974 in Rugby, Warwickshire, England.

He is a conserver and a stained glass artist, and he is impregnated with the spirit of modernity of this technique in England, being him one of the present exponents of it, and a young promise of this ancestral art.

Among his works can be highlighted the restoration and conservation of the stained glass of Lichfield & Llandaff (Cardiff) cathedrals, Tewkesbury abbey, and the churches of Leamington Spa, Warwick & Stratford d’Avon, among others.

The rose window, inspired by Gaudí, represents the Heavenly City surrounded by angels. It was made in 2000 to commemorate the Millennium and can be found in the church of St Nicholas in the village of Radford Semele. It is a small window -about 1 metre across- and is executed in traditional painted and stained glass and lead, no different in technique to the windows that survive from medieval times.
