St Martin's, Canterbury, Kent

In one of the oldest parish churches in the country, a window was commissioned for the sanctuary. The theme was taken from St. John chapter17 verse 21. "That they may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us..."

"May they all be one"

A design full of movement, pathways from different directions zig zag upwards towards a golden orb of fiery orange glass. The design could also be read as shapes falling away and revealing the orb. The orb, an orange circle - a perfect shape - is symbolic of perfection and perfect attainment.

Because the window is north facing it does not receive any direct sunlight and so I have worked with strong bright contrasting colours. The dark blues and purples highlight the brightness of the reds, oranges and yellows.

I can't thank you enough - I find your window touches me to the heart... - Nicole Haddon
