					GLOUCESTER DIOCESAN ADVISORY COMMITTEE STAINED AND ENGRAVED GLASS : A SELECTION OF RECENT WORK IN GLOUCESTER DIOCESE This list is intended to assist those who are considering a new commission. For that reason, I have not included anything by artists who are no longer working. I have indicated whether the churches are normally open. However, before making a special journey, you are recommended to ch eck with someone from the parish - telephone numbers are in the Diocesan Directory. You are invited to discuss your ideas with the Diocesan Advisory Committee at the outset. Also, the DAC strongly recommends that approaches be made to at least two artists. Most will require a nominal fee for producing a preliminary sketch. This expenditure is usually well worth incurring however, because of the value of having several schemes to compare against each other. It is important to think about the character and position of the window for which stained glass is intended. What natural light does it receive, and what light does it give to the interior of the church? On the whole, it is best not to constrain the artist too much – in particular a “shopping list” of things to include in the window makes the artist‟s task harder and the result may not be satisfa ctory. A theological or scriptural approach is usually more satisfactory than an attempt to bring in local themes. As an alternative to commissioning new stained or engraved glass, windows can be reglazed in new handmade glass (usually to replace machine-rolled obscure glass) and a painted or engraved pane (or „quarry‟) of glass can be included as a memorial or as a simple record of the work. There are many examples around the diocese, but particularly at Bibury (1995). If you wish to contact any of the artists named, I can supply current addresses and phone numbers.
