Three transepts of the Holy Trinity Church in Shanghai. The windows are quite small the largest windows are about 10ft by 2ft but intensively worked using flashed glass, acid etching, traditional glass painting and silverstaining. The rose windows are around 40 inches in diameter.
The brief for the first transept, behind the altar was to make windows that felt like the original windows that were all destroyed during the Cultural Revolution. The two images here are for the two smallest windows, the rose windows.
The project is a collaboration between the artist, myself, and the Derix Studio in Germany.
The project is ongoing, two phases are now completed.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
