Debora Coombs award-winning stained glass is exhibited, commissioned and collected internationally. She has a Masters from The Royal College of Art in London. Coombs immigrated to the USA with her family in 1996 while creating twenty stained glass windows for St Mary’s Cathedral in Portland, Oregon.
Geometry and the projection of light have always been key components of her work. In 2013 Coombs began exploring mathematical projections as a way to understand shifts between dimensions of space. Working from Penrose tiling (a two-dimensional ‘shadow’ of a five-dimensional lattice) she began building 3D models, using classic design skills to explore various aspects of mathematics.
