Coldash, Berkshire ~ 2011. Two windows to the school hall ‘Resurrection’ & Creation’, and 14 windows of the ‘Stations of the Cross’ to classrooms.

Saint Finian’s School

The ‘Creation’ and ‘Resurrection’  windows, each measuring 1.5 M diameter are situated high up in the gable ends of the school hall, and flood the space below with coloured light. Representing the Creation of the Old Testament and the New Testament Resurrection.

The windows of the Stations of the Cross appear in seven classrooms, where views open up across neighbouring countryside. These windows recreate in fired oxide pigment and enamels a central roundel of artwork produced by the children originally on paper, illustrating each of the fourteen Stations. The Crown of Thorns surrounding the roundel are created with fused glass technique.

In this, the Resurrection window below, the shroud of Christ rises from the tomb, an image of hope and salvation.

Right, the Creation window begins as a burst of light which emerges from the darkness on this first day of creation, followed by the forming of the stars and the separation of the land from the waters from which the myriad life forms unfold in a spiral of images and colour.
