Ria has recently designed and produced eight decorative glass panels for an existing interior glass wall in Our Lady’s Church in Fleet, Hampshire. She was approached by the church’s creative team to come up with a colourful design to depict the Sacraments: Baptism, Reconciliation, Communion, Confirmation, Holy Orders, Marriage and the Sacrament of the Sick. The eighth panel depicts Our Lady, Mary.
Ria drew out the designs and a team of ladies joined in the painting of the glass. This project was the source of much laughter, the gaining of a new skill and a sense of community in producing a work of art together.
The new panels now enhance the entrance to the church and provide a warm welcome to visitors new and old.
