David Caron – Michael Healy: An Túr Gloine’s Stained Glass Pioneer

October 15, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Michael Healy was raised in a Dublin tenement and through a combination of innate talent, hard work and lucky breaks he pulled himself out of grinding poverty. Ahead of Harry Clarke, Wilhelmina Geddes and Evie Hone, he established the bar for artistic and technical excellence in the exacting craft of stained glass and worked at the world-renowned An Túr Gloine (Tower of Glass) studio for almost four decades.

This talk will explore the highlights of Healy’s stained glass career – windows that convey everything from austere majesty to tender humanity, often revelling in beguiling narrative detail.
