About the Artist

Altyn imagines himself an impressionist whose medium is glass instead of oils, acrylics or pastels. Approach his stunning panels as you would impressionist paintings. They are compelling both on a wall and in a window. Unlike most stained-glass artists, Altyn typically uses a small number of relatively large glass pieces. He chooses glass styles, textures, and colors to evoke location, hour, weather, and season. He captures flowing natural boundaries and interrupts them with a straight-line horizon or a circular arc moon, sun or planet. Altyn’s signature technique is hole-drilling a glass sheet, then using a separating ring-saw blade to cut silhouettes of sun, moon, planets, or animals which appear to float in the glass background. Altyn’s art succeeds when you feel its wind in your hair, its sunny warmth on your face, its water flowing about you, its night chill on your skin, its soft fur or slick skin on your fingertips, its evocative natural power in your astonished gaze. While he has a PhD in engineering, Altyn has no education or training in art. He discovered his unique style through inspiration and experimentation. Lives and works in Alexandria, VA.
