'The Master and Margarita'

'The Master and Margarita'

Stained glass panels used as interior illustrations for 'The Master and Margarita' by Mikhail Bulgakov.

Each of the 6 panels is etched, painted and leaded using traditional techniques I learned during an internship with a glass studio this Summer. Using this traditional technique as a medium for illustration really suited the rich, energetic and fantastical elements of the story as well as complementing the religious and historical themes throughout the novel.

This was a self-directed student project.
