Durham Cathedral Update – Taking Templates
— August 2017
Work is ongoing for my commission for Durham Cathedral. I was there last month with John Mahoney, taking templates for the new stained glass window I am making.

Being close up to the North Quire Aisle window gave me an even fuller sense of the size and shape of this window; its position within the building, and sight lines. This is very helpful as I continue to build on the artwork.

The view from the scaffolding made me appreciate the sheer scale of this incredible building, and the detail of the stonework was a reminder that despite scale this awesome piece of architecture is handmade.
