Public Projects

Architectural glass for public projects

 

We concentrate on all aspects of the design process from colour choice, detail of the theme, interior decoration to suit the aesthetic choices and more. Working closely with each client we create lasting, powerful and well thought out window designs.

Marga and Collections - Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery, 2019

​ A permanent artwork inspired by Margaret Agnes Rope and the Museum’s ‘Hall of Rocks & Minerals’ collection, located by the entrance to the Medieval Gallery. The window was inspired by Margaret Agnes Rope’s Marga’s Baptistery Window at Shrewsbury Cathedral, her contribution to women in art and her fusion of the modern and spiritual.

 

We engaged the local community in the project through various practical workshops that generated contributions to the final artwork through ideas for the final design and through their own painted Stained Glass panels.

Marga & Collections: Removing and Building

A documentary film by KAE Films capturing the project’s collaborative approach of the stained-glass artwork design, the value of learning about stained-glass through community-led work and how stained-glass is explored as a contemporary craft within art practice today.

Our Modern Magna Carta – International Slavery Museum Liverpool, 2015

A project we embarked on with 15 year 9 students to create a Stained Glass window for display in the Martin Luther King Jr building at the Albert Dock, Liverpool to commemorate 800 years since the signing of the Magna Carta.

 

The window captured not only elements of the people and campaigns that the students learnt about throughout the project, but ideas about freedom, peace, hope and justice and the stories and people that inspired the students, from Malala Yousafzai to Nelson Mandela, Justice for the 96, the abolition of slavery and the meaning behind Ghanaian Adinkra symbols! It also highlighted the laws from the original Magna Carta that are still enshrined in law. Laws that have given inspiration and hope to people across the ages in their darkest hours of despair and loss of hope:

Clauses 39 & 40: The right to trial by jury - 

“No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possessions, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any other way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so, except by the lawful judgement of his equals or by the law of the land.

“To no one will we sell, to no one deny or delay right or justice”.
