The roof for the cathedral has this outer layer of terra-cotta tiles from Kenya Clay. It was felt that the tiles should not be left simply in this natural state, so we created a design based on cutting the tiles.
The glass used in this project is the American made Bullseye Glass.
This glass can be melted together, known as fusing.
This enables various colours to be melted on a base glass.
It also makes possible the relief sculpted glass used in the making of the Stations of the Cross.
The Stations of the Cross panels are made using Bullseye Glass.
The mould is the most important part of this process. This is made from silica sand and plaster of paris. The glass is melted on that mould to create the relief sculpted glass.
The steel doors and the installation of the panels was carried out by Propolis Studio.
The cathedral has two sets of steel doors, there are relief sculpted bronze panels inserted into these doors. The method of creating the art work for these panels is similar to what is required to make the glass relief sculptures.
In this portion of the website, we will show other glass works that we can make here in Kenya.
This will be added to as we go along.
