Newcastle Cathedral

St Margaret’s Chapel is going to get a renovation and I have been selected as the artist to go forward with design and consideration of a number of elements. We hope to replace 1 or 2 of the windows, the altar, the lighting, some seating, candle holders, screen, donation box and prayer desk; its a comprehensive project. The premise for it all that I am approaching it with is around the humility, simplicity and potential of a folded paper prayer and the ritual/comfort of lighting a candle. The aspiration is to create a space of meditation and contemplation for anybody and everybody, whatever their belief , need or denomination. I am looking forward to the opportunity to collaborate with other makers on furniture  and  lighting etc as well as the opportunity to create widows that play with light.
