St Paul's Narthex Doors
Brighton
In 2011 a double pair of carved, polished, and toughened glass doors were installed at St Paul's Brighton.

The design took a synergistic approach to architectural glass art. The art functions alongside the view of the rich interior at St Paul's, which is such a special element in this inner city church.

St Paul and mackerel are the theme of the art. Once a year St Paul's church celebrates the fishing heritage of this cosmopolitan, thriving seaside city by blessing the mackerel. In decades past local fisherman used the vestry for hanging out their nets to dry.

Bespoke ironmongery featured as part of this commission.
The apertures for the doors are 2.1m x 3.3m
