Alan Younger chose not to employ assistants because he wished to cut and paint all of the glass himself. To watch him dabbing at the surface of the glass with tissues or his badger brushes, or sticking out the glass paint with a needle or the tips of his fingers, made one realise that it would have been impossible for anyone else to make up his designs.
