Orpington

2011 St Joseph’s Church, Orpington, Kent, UK Three windows Madonna and Child 1.2m in diameter, Saint Joseph 3m high and Saints Peter and Paul 3m high

Traditional figures, High Renaissance in form and Twentieth Century in style, adorn this newly built Catholic church. The style of Leonard Walker in 1929 was the craft method used; painted faces with un-painted multi-coloured glass describing the drapery and background. The un-painted glass was hand-blown by English Antique Glass in Birmingham, UK. The windows were designed and the faces and skin painted on glass by Blount. The un-painted glass was cut and the panels built and installed by Lead and Light in Camden, London.
