Asian Theme for the Lunar New Year

Tying in nicely with the Chinese New Year, I’ve been working on a new design for a beautiful home here in Vancouver. The project is three entryway windows composed of elements which are important to the family; symbols of good fortune, honour and longevity in Chinese culture. The majority of the imagery is derived from […]

17th Window in the Clerestory Series

                    We’re currently working on our 17th window in the clerestory series for St. Mary’s Anglican Church in Kerrisdale, Vancouver. This time it’s the turn of St. Cecilia, who is always lovely to depict. Due to the dimensions of the window, we chose a violin as […]

New Windows for Sacred Heart Cathedral

                                    John was off again earlier this week for another installation, this time only as far as Sacred Heart Cathedral, Kamloops – what we now think of as a short 4 hour drive! He installed two new windows, […]

So, apologies for the delay….here we go…. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all involved in this project […]

“The Way of Beauty” Exhibition

Members of the Guild (ourselves included) each exhibit pieces that celebrate the traditional and vibrant art forms of iconography, calligraphy, oil painting, […]

We’re nearing the final stage of a 2 window project for Sacred Heart Cathedral in Kamloops. One of the windows is completely fabricated and depicts Saint Margaret […]

The Great West Window – Update

I’ve just got back from visiting the project at First Presbyterian Church, Edmonton. It was great to see how John and Warren are getting on; so far the 18 top traceries are just about completed, which has  involved a lot of finessing, but it looks fantastic. I like this photo because it shows just how […]

This is an exciting week for us! In a couple of days John and Warren will be heading off to Alberta to install the restoration project that we have been working on for over a year. Some of you may remember when I blogged about the removal of this window back in May last year […]
