Revelation in Cornwall

St Martin’s Parish Church in Liskeard commissioned Jacqui to create a design for a glass screen as part of a major refurbishment. Completed in spring 2018, the design has been sandblasted onto the glass.

The glass screen, situated in front of the War Memorial Chapel, creates a new space linking the old with the new.

Jacqui’s design is about the battle in the heavenlies from the vision found in Revelation. Here, John sees a pregnant woman: a baby is about to be born. An everyday event. But the birth of this baby will change the course of history. The birth of the people of God. The birth of Jesus Christ - the son of Mary - the son of God. But not everyone will like it!

 

A seven headed dragon and his dark angels have been hurled to earth by the mighty angel Michael and the angels under his command. The dragon - a symbol for Satan and all that is evil - is waiting to devour the vulnerable baby. But the dragon will not succeed.

Jesus is the Lord of lords and the King of kings, and the victory is his. As in all good stories good wins over evil.

 

Threads and Ripples

A large panel [approximately 152cms wide and 80cms high] commission for the Chapel at Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital in 2017. White silk with a stitched pattern of spirals. On top are sentences chosen and used by those caring for patients and their families. The hope is that these stitched words will ripple out and affect many.
