Alston Hall ( see previous post) has a very jolly commemorative stained glass window in the little chapel. I first noticed it when I went for a walk on a very misty Sunday morning.
From within, the colours glowed
Then today, in the Morley College Gallery, there was an exhibition by the Guild of Glass Engravers ( on until 23rd October). I've never been sure about glass engraving, as a lot of it seems very formulaic and a bit repetitive, however, the pieces on display were very inspiring. Glass is very difficult to photograph well, but the galleries of each of the artists have excellent representations of their work.
and very movingly, Alison Kinnaird, " The Unknown"
All that, after a lesson on two point perspective, and attendance at a talk last night by Barbara Chainey about her huge collection of pieces made by the Tentmakers of Cairo, was much food for thought.
