Different representations of violence are brought together here, using a variety of stained glass techniques. In this complex composition, pieces of glass have been etched with acid, stained, plated and leaded to juxtapose different textures and tones. The imagery reflects a number of stories that the viewer can contemplate individually or as a combined statement on the theme of violence. The artist trained in the stained glass studio of Joseph Bell and Son in Bristol, founded in the Victorian Gothic Revival. She opened her own studio in 1996, and won the commission to design and create the Millennium Window for Chester Cathedral.
