Wood, Stone & Light

The basic raw materials of architecture over the centuries. Wood, stone and light. Each of these is a natural material to be found in abundance and capable of being formed, in the artist’s hands, into the most elaborate structures and details. In churches they can soar to the heights in Gothic vaults, traceries and screens to bring home the glory of His works.

Here, a simple Parish Church, very plain in its own way, demonstrates the reason why these materials, wood, stone and light can resonate with us. The mellow surfaces of wood and stone come alive when the light dapples their surfaces so that the worn surfaces reveal a patina and texture, and a warmth of colour that we find very agreeable.
