St George's New Window (detail)

Posted by sithenah (Greater Manchester/Cheshire, United Kingdom) on 11 April 2015 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

A detail in one of St George's New Windows.

The original stained glass windows in St George's Church, Hyde, UK were destroyed when a bomb dropped on Church Street during WWII. New East windows have now been created by glass artist Sarah Galloway who was commissioned in 2012 to create a new east window and two adjacent side windows. They were installed and dedicated by the Bishop of Chester in February 2015.

More photographs of the new windows can be found on Hyde Xtra.

Gorgeous colors - an imposing orange for a strong deity, and the swirling pattern feels heavenly. Nice view of stained glass art
