Tees firm's cathedral glass act.
Creative Glass, of Stockton, joined forces with Newton Aycliffe-based Echo Graphics to produce the six-foot tall semi-circular windows, costing a total of PS25,000. They now make up part of Durham Cathedral's PS1.2m makeover of its Undercroft, to include a new coffee shop and gift store.
The new panes of glass - four sections, each made up of three panes - were made using specialist low-iron, water-clear glass to enable it to transmit LED lights through it and enhance the artwork, taken from an ancient Bible. Tony Campbell, managing director of Creative Glass, said it was important to maintain an authentic feel to the artwork while also giving it a modern look.
He said: "We were trying to remain faithful to the original manuscripts. We were trying to give them an aged, distressed look."
Durham Cathedral's business support manager Vanessa Ward, has been responsible for the PS1.2m refurbishment of the Undercroft.
She added: "This is the first time in over 100 years that the full 13 arches of the Undercroft are on display."
