Douglas Hogg (b1948) studied at the Edinburgh College of Art from1966-1971 becoming head of the Stained and Architectural Glass degree course there in 1979. He left ECA in 2000 to concentrate fully on developing his own pathway. Solo exhibitions include Past and Present Futures at Glasmalerei Peters Gallery, Paderborn, Germany (2003) and Non-Commissioned Offerings at the Cochrane Gallery, London (2004). Selected group shows include Glass, Light and Space at the British Crafts Council Gallery, London 1996 (British tour) and a touring European collection 'Lumiere du Monde' currently showing at the Galerie du Vitrail, Chartres, France. 

Commissioned works include a large composite wall/window mural in the stairwell at the Edinburgh City Chambers, and an extensive ground-based installation within the Scottish Fern Collection at the Glasgow Botanic Garden. In 2012 he was chosen by Her Majesty the Queen to create a window marking Her Diamond Jubilee Year for The Queen's Chapel of the Savoy in central London. He was also one of two artists short-listed to prepare designs for a centenary window in the OBE Chapel in St Paul's Cathedral, London.

In 2003 he was awarded the Saltire Society Prize for Art in Architecture and in 2007 was installed as a Freeman of the City of London. More recently, in 2016, he was recognised by the Sir John Radcliffe Trust, Oxford for his contribution to glass in architecture.

Douglas has worked with a variety of groups and individuals, both in Scotland and abroad, and has produced a unique and innovative portfolio of work.  Materials he uses include a variety of flat and processed glasses, sometimes in combination with other non-glass elements. The range of techniques used spreads across a broad spectrum of activity, including the use of traditionally applied paints, stains, enamels, gilding, acid-etching, while introducing screenprint, airbrush, cold processes, and heat-formed elements into an expanding remit of contexts and non-traditional uses of the material in architecture.

Unique works both of an internal and external application have been achieved by close liaison with clients and funding partners, private individuals, architects and designers. He is available for consultation on interior/exterior projects of varying scale and focus.

He has lectured extensively both nationally and internationally on his own work and related thematic and historic contexts.
