Canterbury Cathedral

    One of the highlights of 2012 was being shortlisted for the Garfield Weston Foundation Canterbury Cathedral Competition run by the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust. Simply being considered for the role of creating a one-off designed window in Canterbury Cathedral, where many of the original windows are still going strong some 800 years after they were crafted, was a huge privilege.

Bathroom window – Houston Texas

Today I'm packing a bathroom window ready for shipping to Houston, Texas! It's my first international commission so I'm pretty excited about it.

The new West Offices development is part renovation of the original station buildings and part new build including a canopy over where the railway lines were.
