I’m delighted to share this short film documenting the creation of my latest stained glass window. It was made to celebrate the life and family of good friends of mine and was a joy and privilege to be involved with. It was inspired, in part, by the bold and colourful style of Jacobean and crewel embroidery in conjunction with the imagery and idea of the garden. It was made using combinations of sandblasted, painted, enamelled and stained glass to create a rich and varied palette of light and colour.
I asked Jacob Martin of MidNowhere Productions to photograph and film the process to see what it looks like through someone else’s eyes. I think he did a great job and if you are inspired to want some stained glass of your own, get in touch!
Last weekend saw me travel to Oxfordshire to help launch Project Resound, an exciting new glass scheme for the Church of St Michael and All Angels, Blewbury. The project has been underway for several months under wraps and it’s great to share the project as it goes forward.
The scheme is comprised of stained glass designed by myself, complimented by two banks of mirrors and lighting designed in collaboration with Linda Norris in the guise of Studio Melyn.. Together, the two elements create a contemporary art work for the community. You can read more about the launch at the Blewbury Window’s very own facebook page ….at Project Resound
Steve and Wynn’s Window ……
Made for a house in Cumbria, this bold and beautiful window based on crewel embroidery, the garden and the Celebration of Life was installed at the end of April, much to the delight of myself and the client. A full write-up including a short film will soon be available to see.
