The Pentecost Window, All Saints, Penarth

All Saints - 1 (1).jpg

Earlier this summer, back in June, it was the dedication of the Pentecost window in All Saints Church, Penarth. It was a great service and a real privilege to be part of. The window was commissioned in memory of Robert and Phyllis Berry.

The dynamic composition references the events described in Acts 2, “Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. “

The inscription is from the post communion prayer of the Celebration of the Holy Eucharist and is taken from the last part of ‘Send us out in the power of thy Spirit to live and work to thy praise and glory.’

The installation was completed with polycarbonate window guards as protection.

A new commission, designed by Christian, is underway for a memorial window, with the theme of the Pentecost, for All Saints Church Penarth, South Wales. The drawing are complete and the glass is being cut ready to be painted on the easel. More will follow soon.

Worshipful Company of Glaziers Award

Earlier this year Christian was proud to have been awarded a continuing professional development award from The Worshipful Company of Glaziers & Painters of Glass in order to attend a silver stains and enamels master class with Jonathan Cooke in the Glass department in Swansea School of Art. This was an in-depth three day workshop exploring the advanced use of silver stains and enamels in stained glass. Many thanks to the Glaziers Company for this opportunity and to Jonathan for his tuition.
