  • Take home a couple of postcards portraying the stunning Queen's Window by David Hockney and Barley Studio inc. Helen Whittaker Stained Glass & Sculpture, commissioned to celebrate the reign of Her Majesty The Queen.

    David Hockney was inspired by the lyrical landscapes of the Yorkshire Wolds, and the design features hawthorn blossom and uses a palette of popping colours which fits surprisingly but beautifully amongst the Abbey’s existing stained glass.

    Hockney has respected traditional stained glass techniques for the window, and combined them spectacularly with a bold contemporary design.

    The window was designed by the artist on an iPad, which he says lends itself to stained glass design as it is an illuminated backlit screen.

    The window was created by Barley Studio with a project team of ten craftspeople. The glass for the window was sourced in Germany, and produced by Lamberts Glass who could offer the bright colours which Hockney wanted for the window. They use traditional methods to produce mouth-blown window glass. No paint was used on the window except for the artist’s signature in the bottom right-hand panel.
