Artist's Description

The channel island of Jersey has many natural beauty spots, from the coasts lines to the beaches, and from neolithic monuments to the modern relics. There is one place though, that I really find beautifully intriguing to visit. It is St. Matthew’s Church in the parish of St. Lawrence, but better known on the island as “The Glass Church.” The entire church is decorated with frosted decorative glass, from the font to the alter and cross, from windows and doors to the walls or the side chapels. Lady Florence Trent commissioned the very well know french master glass artisan Rene` Lalique to come from Paris to refurbish the interior of the church in the memory of her late husband Jesse Boot, who was the founder of the well known British stores Boots. Lalique’s style of decorative glass and jewelry design has made him world famous and his work very sought after. This angel is one of two that grace the front doors of the entrance. There is also a set of four angels in the chapel in the sanctuary, matching the two on the front doors. For me it is the piercing eyes. At the moment, the church there are trying to raise funds to repair some damage that has been done to the glass and to clean it all. Any sales of this photo, I will be donating over fifty percent back to the church to go into their refurbishment fund. Thank you so much.
