Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

This is a beautiful work of art in the Lady Chapel, within Ely Cathedral.

I took several photographs from different angles and found it difficult to decide which to post so please see the workshops for different impressions.

There was a message alongside the sculpture:

'Solace' by Layne Rowe
These glass wings are a symbol of freedom, unity, strength and power, a focus for people of all faiths and none, to remember the loss of loved ones and contemplate the effects of the pandemic.

The 10ft high installation has been made up of over 100 glass feathers, individually sculpted in clear glass with fine, canework inclusions. Each feather is hung from the bones of the wing, forged beautifully in metal by Ryan Harms.

It was certainly a piece of art which caused me to stop and study and reflect!

Thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
