The gorgeous new stained glass in the north aisle of Norwich Cathedral, designed by artist John McLean.

The windows are lovely on their own, but the colours they cast on the stones around them are truly stunning.

My Canterbury Cathedral project has drawn to a close! (puns)

I traveled to Canterbury to conduct an artistic study on the Romanesque columns in the crypt.  I wanted to understand why this type of imagery was used in a cathedral, and how it functioned in the space.  I spent a great deal of time meditating on the imagery itself, as I reproduced it in my drawings and photographs.  I also did a lot of reading from contemporary and near-contemporary sources on sense and perception, aesthetics, and iconography.  Anselm of Canterbury was both the most interesting and most helpful.  It appears that he personally funded at least part of this, so I spent more time with his writings on art, sense and perception.

Anyways, here ‘tis.  I’ll be posting a few of the individual pieces later on.

Here’s a project I just completed for my Study Abroad program!

I was really excited to see Durham Cathedral through the train window on the way back from Edinburgh.  What a fabulous structure.  (Also saw Lindisfarne from the train… basically nerded out the whole 6 hours home)

Culloden Battlefield - the last and truly awful battle of the Jacobite uprisings took place here on 16 April 1746, when up to 2,000 Jacobite highlanders brutally lost their lives to the loyalist troops who lost only about 50 men in total
