St Nicholas' C of E School, Blackpool

Architectural commission, 2010

The idea for this window came about after the School was extended and a new hall built in March 2009. The 1m x 5m window was unveiled at a Dedication Ceremony held on 16th September 2011, which was attended by the whole School including former teachers and pupils. The stories and teachings of Jesus play a very important part in the lives of the children at the School so the window was designed around five significant events in His life. From bottom to top the panels depict the Nativity, Jesus talking with Children, the Crucifixion, the Resurrection and the topmost panel symbolizes the Light and a candle flame which is one of the motifs of the School.

When designing this window I wanted to express these events in a way that was both accessible, meaningful and uplifting to the children. So with the Nativity panel, for example, I also wanted to convey the power of the relationship between a mother and child. by having each facing the other in a moment of tenderness.
