The Days of Creation at The Chapel, Manchester Harris College, Oxford

An Arts and Craft partnership | The commission | The theme of Creation | The technique


Days of Creation

The partnership of Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris produced some stunning examples of stained glass; they had both studied theology, and the windows they produced combined the freshness of the Arts and Crafts movement with a desire to produce religious imagery for modern environments. The windows were commissioned as a memorial to an undergraduate of Brasenose College, Godfrey William Liddell Arlosh, with funds supplied by his parents.

Select the topics above to find out more about the window or explore the history and craft of stained glass.
