XLII (2018)

2018 ISBN 978 0 9568762 8 7 176 pages, 220 illustrations, most in colour and large scale

Covering stained glass from Wales to Russia, the issue begins with a guest editorial introducing the new look and resources of our BSMGP website. Historical articles explore stained glass in the Russian Empire, with an in-depth history of the successful 19th-century studio of Wladimir Swertschkoff; a study of Christopher Webb’s 20th-century Benedicite windows (beautifully illustrated with comparative designs, cartoons and completed windows); an account of the modern stained glass cautiously embraced by the Diocese of Llandaff in the 1950s and ‘60s; and a report on a remarkable collection held by the Society of Antiquaries of Kempe Studio cartoons made for the restoration of Tewkesbury Abbey’s medieval stained glass.

Contemporary Practice features the cover story describing the complexities of a Royal Commission: new glass doors for the Private Chapel of Her Majesty the Queen in Windsor Great Park. Plus the Glaziers Company Prizes and Awards won in 2018 and the successful Reflections of the Lord Mayor roundel competition offered each year. A 24-page portfolio richly illustrates the latest commissions by BSMGP Fellows and Associates. Conservation and reconstruction projects at the Rosslyn Chapel and Mackintosh's famous Willow Tea Rooms bring us up to speed on technical inquiry in Scotland, followed by detailed book reviews. Obituaries and tributes are published for our distinguished Hon. Fellow, Dr Nicola Gordon Bowe, for Victor Drury and for Colin Stokes AMGP.
