The Cathedral School Llandaff

Work has begun on a new project with The Cathedral School in Llandaff to design and make a stained glass panel to hang in The Lodge. It will commemorate their move into the new building. I've been working all week with nursery, reception, year 1 and 2 creating large scale group drawings to inspire a design based on the theme of 'Growth and Nurture'.

I have to say it's been a great week, the children and staff were wonderful and I'm absolutely shattered! I'll put some more work up as I progress with the project.

Stained Glass Saplings

I installed a new stained glass panel earlier this week that was an external window opening but is now internal following a new extension being built. It had to let a lot of light in as the window is borrowing light from the extension. I used a combination of handblown and rolled glass to modulate the light and sparkle on the surface. The subtle blues and browns tie in with the clients interior design scheme.

The collaged leaf design I've been developing for some time and I'll have to name it properly soon. Suggestions welcome!

Ysgol Nant Talwg Installation

Yesterday saw some new work installed for Ysgol Nant Talwg, a primary school in Barry, South Wales. The enamelled toughened glass units were made by Proto Studios in Wiltshire and are based on drawings and collage made with the pupils in workshops earlier in the year.

The strong colours look amazing in the space, it was great to see them in place and I'm looking forward to taking some photos when the building is finished!
