A Vibrant Installation – Otford Methodist Church, Kent
— September 2017
A major contemporary scheme has been installed in two phases at Otford Methodist Church in Kent. This has involved designing glasswork for both the interior and exterior of the newbuild architecture.

Firstly, an elevated and suspended glass cross was given centre stage upon a generous curved dais. The cross forms a focal point to worship within the very modern arena. This textured glasswork is spacial and subtle – further brought to life by coloured light.

In September we installed the large south elevation window. This is a blaze of vivid and rhythmic colour in contrast to the cross. The design is intuitive and free thinking. It is a vibrant expression of faith that faces out into the community, and also brings the focus of worship into the church.

I’ve been working on this wonderful scheme for some while and it has been fantastic to see it come together this year.
