People who have saved this event:


A two-day symposium addressing over 70 years of innovation and iconography in the glass art of British and European churches and cathedrals. The programme includes analysis of contemporary works in glass as well as those of the modern period.


This two-day symposium will explore the shifts in methods, style, and iconography found in glass art for churches and cathedrals over the last 70 years. It will make reference to European models and influences, and will also address particular exemplars from British churches and cathedrals of all denominations, through which to understand better the challenges and opportunities that are present in the exceptional medium of glass, coloured or plain. The symposium will seek to draw out what glass means theologically as an integral part of a place of worship, a vehicle of light, and a boundary between within/without.
