Abingdon School Oxfordshire
Another ongoing project is the Chapel at Abingdon School Oxfordshire.
Artist Nick Mynheer was commissioned by the School to design 10 new windows for their chapel. Nick produces the designs and then provides Davia with paintings for her to interpret and realise as fully fused glass. These are panels approx 15mm thick made using “Bullseye” fusing compatible glass. The coloured glass sheets and glass frits are laid in layers and multiple fired creating a three dimensional effect. It’s both a very artistic and technical process.
We have already made three fused panels and four sandblasted design panels with fused glass elements bonded to the surface, for the alter windows. We have recently been commissioned through Nick Mynheer to make two more fused windows and four sandblasted design windows with fused elements bonded to the surface for the remaining chapel windows.
