Missenden Abbey - Great Missenden - Buckinghamshire
stained glass windows by David Pearl
A suite of stained glass windows by David Pearl throughout Missenden Abbey in Great Missenden.
The windows employ English, French and German mouthblown glass.
English streaky glass is used for its rich transparent textures.
French Flashed Antique glass is extensively acid etched to create 'brush strokes' of colour.
The French glass allows the south facing windows to project a rich palette of colour
onto the white plaster and natural stone of the interior.
The German transparent tints of 'Echt' antique glass echo the qualities of early window glass.
German white opal is used in the entrance lancet to create
a canvas for the abbey's collection of Flemish glass.
