My grandfather was an optician. Coming from

an East London working class background (no

schooling past the age of 14), a professional

optician was probably not on his list of

aspirational careers. The story goes that when

he was asked by a careers offi cer what he wanted to do

when he fi nished school, he replied that he wished to be

an electrician like his father. The careers offi cer was hard

of hearing and sent him to night school to study to be an

optician. This he did, and in fact became a rather successful

one.

February/March 2016

This meant that from my teenage years, when I fi rst

became short-sighted, until my twenties, when he retired,

I had an inexhaustible supply of free glasses and contact

lenses. Only later in life did I realise how many hundreds

of pounds this must have saved me. Such a benefi t was not always to my

advantage, however. In the 1980s I was one of the fi rst people I know to

get the new light-sensitive lenses. This mean that in the summer I could

play football outside with friends with “cool” looking shades on (banned in

school). Unfortunately the technology was still in its infancy and I would

usually spend the fi rst ten minutes back in the classroom being unable to

see a thing. School photos also show me looking far from the cool-shaded

dude that I thought I was. I hate to think what my classroom colleagues

thought of it all.

Many years later, as I considered my own response to faith in Jesus

Christ and the differing responses of my friends to my belief – some of

whom were sympathetic, some of whom were downright hostile – the

analogy of seeing through imperfect lenses would come back to me. We

all have our own set of lenses on our minds. In some circumstances these

lenses help us see clearly, and in some circumstances they obscure our

vision. Without the lenses of reason and logic we would understand nothing

of the workings of the universe, the marvels of modern medicine or the

delicate connections that make up an ecosystem. Yet these same lenses

can be limiting when we encounter human emotions, artistic endeavour or

faith in God. Too often I feel that I have walked from one environment into

another and my lenses have not suffi ciently adapted. I am

still in the dark.

St Paul in his famous poem on love spoke of how

we now see in a glass darkly but one day we will see

face-to-face. He is looking forward to a time when we

will be so enraptured with the wonder of God and his

new creation that there will be no need for lenses at

all. We really will see things as they really are. In

the meantime we perhaps need to ask ourselves

what lenses we are seeing through at the moment, and

whether they are enhancing or distorting our vision of

the world around us.

The Turner Museum o

Sheffield’s Turner Museum of

Glass is one of the UK’s most

comprehensive collections of 19th

and 20th Century glass. We asked

Emeritus Professor John M Parker to

tell us more.

Everyone knows Sheffield as a

centre for the metals industries.

W.E.S. Turner, arriving

in 1904 from humble

roots in Birmingham,

was no exception and he

set about applying his

university education to

make a difference. His

desire was to serve

and he was determined

to break down those

barriers of secrecy

holding industry back.

Based in what was soon

to be the University of

Sheffield he was well

placed. In 1914 he was

elected President of the

Sheffield Society of Applied

Metallurgy.

The granting of a university charter

in 1905 added impetus to change as

Sheffield sought to identify its place

among the new civic universities.

Turner circulated a questionnaire to

local industry but to his surprise many

replies came from small glass firms.

The glassmakers Wood Brothers in

Barnsley were typical and notably

Barnsley includes a glassmaker in

its coat of arms. All needed help and

Turner did not look away. He set up a

whole university department and created

a society with members drawn from

industry and university working together

to solve problems. The First World War

and associated shortages of glass-based

products such as laboratory-ware gave

yet another push to such developments.

He later commented ‘For better or

worse I am part and parcel of the glass

industry’.

In 1933 he expanded his horizons to

form an international community

of people interested in glassmaking,

using contacts in

Germany, Italy, Spain,

France, Russia and the

US. This organisation still

exists.

While principally a

technologist he also

appreciated good

design. Indeed his

second wife was

a renowned glass

artist and among

his colleagues was

Frederick Carder, who set

up the US firm Steuben

Glassworks, famous

for its innovative designs.

Such connections resulted in a

major personal collection of glass art,

including many unique items bequeathed

to him on his world travels. In 1943 he

gifted it to the university. Its 400 pieces

have since been boosted by a collection

of fine wine glasses and many individual

gifts.

You can visit the Turner Museum

of Glass on weekdays apart from

public holidays. It’s rarely busy in the

afternoons or during university holidays.

Access is from Portobello Street

opposite the entrance to the multi-storey

car park at the junction with Rockingham

Street. We are close to the West Street

I

have now been an independent

designer maker for over 18

years and my studio is situated

in the heart of Sheffi eld’s

cultural Industries Quarter at

Yorkshire Artspace’s Persistence

Works. Having trained in threedimensional

design specialising in

metalwork and jewellery, initially my

work was exclusively metalwork but

I soon added stained glass work to

my repertoire. I enjoy both crafts

very much and love working with the

extensive range of beautiful materials

available.

My metalwork is mainly handraised

and patinated copper bowls

and I fi nd the process of chemically

colouring and texturing the surfaces

fascinating; you never know quite

what you are going to get but it

seldom disappoints. After a long

hiatus I have recently taken up

chasing again. This is a technique

of producing patterns and designs

on fl at or formed metal using various

different shaped punches.

I recently made a small communion

set for my church, St Mary’s in

Walkley, and I am about to start work

on a chased panel for an aumbry

door for them.

with God the Maker

My stained glass

work is the dominant

part of my business

and I make both

windows and threedimensional

pieces

such as bowls,

containers, lighting

and Wardian cases

which, in case you

have never heard

of them, are like

miniature green

houses. Occasionally

I combine both glass

and metalwork in the

same piece which

adds greater scope to

what I am able to offer.

Although it is not what I set out to

do, most of my work is now made to

commission and usually for private

individuals.

Collaborating with

them has proved

really rewarding and

I am very proud

of the resulting

pieces. The greatest

compliment is when

a customer describes

their piece as their pride

and joy. What more could I ask!

In the coming year I am looking

forward to working on a major project

for a large stained glass and metal

screen for St Chad’s Church in

Woodseats.

My faith is an integral part of my

everyday life and this includes my

work. I see God very much as a maker

and a saying I heard from a Rabbi

sums up much of how I feel about my

creative practice, “Joining with God in

the work of creation”. Again, what more

could anyone ask!

Taking a Break for Lent

How do you like your

pancakes? With

maple syrup, honey, or

chocolate sauce? It’s

always with sugar and

lemon juice in our house, very

traditional, and usually wolfed

down without much thought that

they are the remains of a much

older, medieval feast.

Shrove Tuesday, known by the

French as Mardi Gras, or ‘Fat

Tuesday’, was the last day of

a three-day binge to use up all

the milk, eggs, meat and other

perishables that would go off

during Lent: strict church rules

meant that such foods couldn’t

be eaten again till Easter.

Next on the horizon after the

pancakes are the Easter eggs, of

course, but what about Lent, the

40 days in between?

Lent reminds us of the 40 days

Jesus spent in the wilderness

without food, fi ghting off the devil

with nothing but his knowledge

of Old Testament scripture.

Some churches still observe

Lent as a period of very strict

fasting and often no meat is

eaten over the whole period.

Most of us think however of

simply “giving something up for

Lent”. Chocolate or sweets are

a popular choice, while we look

forward to those eggs…

The underlying idea is that

we do ourselves good by the

discipline of dieting, we give

the money we save to

charities that help the poor,

and we use the time we

might be eating chocolate

to pray and get closer

to God. A lot of churches

run Lent courses, guided

sessions of Bible study and

prayer, during the period.

It doesn’t have to be chocolate

of course; what about giving up

smoking, or alcohol – or social

media?!

For a different approach, try

logging onto www.tearfund.org

and searching the site for “Lent”

or “Carbon Fast”. You’ll fi nd some

imaginative approaches to using

less energy during Lent, reducing

our impact on the environment

and on poorer communities

adversely affected by climate

change. There are lots of creative

prayer and meditation ideas as

well.

Lent starts six weeks, or

(roughly) 40 days before

Easter, which is the only church

celebration whose date is still

fi xed by the lunar calendar. This

is because Easter always has to

fall over a weekend, remembering

that Jesus was crucifi ed on

a Friday and rose again on a

Sunday morning.

It’s early this year – Lent starts

on February 10, so have a think

about what you might want to do,

and don’t be caught out by the

calendar.

Every now and then someone will

knock on the vicarage door asking

if they can be let into the church.

They do not want to come in and

pray, nor do they want somewhere

to shelter from the rain, or even to use

the facilities (though these are all reasons

why people sometimes do ask for entry).

Some people want to go into the church

for the sole reason of seeing the stained

glass windows.

This may surprise some people,

for whom St Chad’s appears a fairly

unprepossessing building hardly likely to

contain architectural treasures (though it

is Grade II* listed). St Chad’s is certainly

not Chartres cathedral, nor does it have

anything to rival the rose window of York

minster. But it does have some attractive

and interesting stained glass.

When the church was built it had no

stained glass at all. In fact it didn’t have

a great deal of anything – the outbreak of

the First World War meant that money ran

out for the building and only the nave was

initially completed. The windows were

made of clear glass. I don’t know whether

there had originally been any plans to

adorn the building with stained glass, but

in any event the windows when they were

fitted were clear.

The First World War sadly gave many

decorations to the church in the form of

war memorials. It is the memorial in the

shape of a stained glass window that is

the one that excites the interest of church

visitors. The window is in the centre of the

south wall. The left-hand scene shows a

traditional picture of the Lord’s Supper (the

observant can spot Judas on the far left,

clutching a bag of money). On the right is

shown a scene from the trenches. British

soldiers are receiving a ‘Field Communion’

Stories in Glass

Three of the stained glass windows in St Chad’s Church

from a padre. In the foreground, receiving

the Holy Sacrament, is a young man with

a moustache. He is Lieutenant C. Gordon

Harbord who died during the Battle of the

Somme on September 1, 1916. His name

also appears in the confirmation register

of the church a few years before his early

death. Harbord Road in Woodseats

is named after him, St Chad’s Church

House was first owned by his parents and

the family still has strong connections with

Sheffield - his great nephew is the current

chaplain to the Bishop of Sheffield.

Shortly after this stained glass window

was commissioned and dedicated,

another window to the left was installed.

This shows two traditional Gospel scenes:

one of the haemorrhaging woman who

was healed when she touched Jesus’

cloak and the other of the annunciation

with the Angel Gabriel appearing to

Mary. Intriguingly Gabriel is shown with

striking African features in contrast to the

usual flowing blond locks and pale skin

that many angels are deemed to have.

Gabriel holds a lily, a sign of purity and

virginity. This window is very much in the

style of the Arts and Crafts Movement of

the late Nineteenth Century and this too

has attracted visitors to the church.

On the north wall of the church is a

window depicting four saints, dedicated

in 1945 to the memory of a worshipper,

John Wolstenholme. The four saints

(from left to right) are St John, St Peter,

St Paul and St Chad. If you look very

closely at St John you will see him holding

a chalice out of which pops a very small

black serpent. This alludes to the legend

that John was given a poisoned chalice to

drink but the poison had no effect on him.

A final, almost unseen piece of stained

glass in the church can be seen high on

the north wall of the chancel. This was

donated by Professor Violet Dimbleby, a

professor of glass at Sheffield University.

The small roundel, made by the professor

herself, shows a scene from the Old

Testament story of Eli and Samuel when

Samuel hears God calling him.

The church rebuilding works, scheduled

for later this year do not include any plans

to alter or add to the existing stained glass

windows - although we hope eventually

to decorate the east wall, which at

present only has a small round window,

with something colourful to draw the

worshippers’ attention. The windows will

remain, each telling their stories and each

revealing their secrets to those who look

closely enough.

Seeing the Future?

Google Glass’s tagline

is “Getting technology

out of the way”. It is a

headset computer, with

a small screen that puts

information in the wearer’s line of

sight. It’s a bit like a smartphone

that you wear on your head.

It was voice-commanded, and

users could quickly get directions,

read and send messages, take

photos and videos, and access

the internet. It was announced in

April 2012, and went on general

sale in May 2014. The device

got a lot of media coverage, both

positive and negative. Was this

going to be the next big thing in

personal computing?

It didn’t take long, however,

for criticisms to start to roll in.

For a start, it was suggested

that the devices weren’t actually

very good. They were buggy and

difficult to use, and the quality

of the photos and video wasn’t

very good even compared to

smartphone cameras. But quickly

other concerns started to arise.

Privacy issues rose to the fore,

with Google Glass wearers being

banned from cinemas to prevent

piracy, and even from restaurants

to ensure diners could eat without

PICTURE BY KĀRLIS DAMBRĀNS

being worried about surreptitious

photographs being taken. Some

even described the device as a

“stalker’s friend”.

But positive stories about the

use of Google Glass started to

come through too. Google Glass

has been used widely in health

care situations. In Europe, Google

Glass has been reported to be

used in surgery, in ambulances

and even in a trauma helicopter

to give medical staff information

and assistance as they worked.

A further trial in Australia

experimented with giving support

to new breastfeeding mothers

using Google Glass, so that

lactation consultants could see the

baby as the mother saw them.

However, in January 2015,

Google announced that they

had stopped the manufacture of

Google Glass, and was moving

on in its research. At the time

of writing, there are rumours

of Google Glass version 2, but

nothing has been announced by

Google.

Is this the future of mobile

computing, or is this simply a

novelty that will soon wear off?

Only time will tell!

Seeing Life Through a Lens

For those of us who are

usually the last to get wet

when it rains (one of the

few advantages of being

short?) the Hall of Mirrors

at funfairs offers an opportunity

to look tall and impossibly thin.

There are other mirrors that can

make you look squished or with

a strange wiggle in the middle!

Perhaps these mirrors reflect the

imagination of children, who often

see the world through a particular

‘lens’ of fun, joy and optimism.

These days of

course children are

more likely to use

one of the many

apps on phones

and tablets that

can do the same

thing as the Hall of

Mirrors or better –

my daughter has a

collection of rather

embarrassing but

funny distorted

pictures of her poor

dad!

In the popular

Bible passage often read out

at weddings about love (1

Corinthians 13), St Paul writes:

“When I was a child, I talked like

a child, I thought like a child, I

reasoned like a child. When I

became a man, I put the ways of

childhood behind me. For now

we see only a reflection as in a

mirror; then we shall see face to

face. Now I know in part; then I

shall know fully, even as I am fully

known.”

We all see life through some

kind of lens, perhaps distorted or

altered by our upbringing, culture

and life experiences. I wonder

how our own lenses distort our

view of how things really are.

‘For now we see

only a reflection

as in a mirror;

then we shall see

face to face. Now

I know in part;

then I shall know

fully, even as I am

fully known’

1 Corinthians 13

Having reached my mid-forties

when the physical lenses of my

eyes are not as flexible as they

once were, and finally giving in to

needing varifocals in order to

see things both near and far

away, I also wonder how the

way I see things as an adult may

have become less flexible, less

imaginative and less forgiving

than when I was a child.

St Paul says: “...now we see

only a reflection as in a mirror;

then we shall see face to face.”

Writing to the first

followers of Jesus

Christ but also to us

today, St Paul gives a

timely reminder that

things are not always

as they might seem.

It would be perfectly

natural to look at the

recent dark, horrific

events such as

those in Paris on 13

November 2015 and

say to God: where

were you in all of

that? How could you

allow it? And yet, if we look closely

enough, flex our lenses as-it-were,

and the bigger picture emerges,

we notice a multitude of sacrifices,

acts of mercy and heroism,

where local residents opened

their homes to strangers, people

queued outside hospitals to give

blood, others shielded each other

with their own bodies.

As St Paul rightly concludes:

“And now these three remain:

faith, hope and love. But the

greatest of these is love.” May

we look forward to knowing these

fully, even as we are fully known

by God.

A Half Forgotten Song

by Katherine Webb

Zach Gilchrist, a gallery

owner and trained artist,

has fallen on hard times.

With his marriage over

and his gallery failing, he

decides to research his favourite

artist with the aim of writing a

book about the artists life.

Zach’s possible family link and

his obsession with artist Charles

Aubrey takes him to Blacknowle,

a Dorset village on the coast.

Here he hopes to get the

answer to all his questions about

Aubrey’s life and death, and to

find out about the identities of the

women depicted in the paintings

he has displayed in his gallery.

Charles Aubrey was an artist

whose life was cut short by the

Second World War and whose

last few months alive were

shrouded in mystery.

Aubrey and his family spent

many summers in Blacknowle

village and Zach’s research there

leads him to Mitzy Hatcher, an

elderly eccentric woman who

spent a lot of time with the family

as a young girl. Mitzy became

firm friends with Aubrey’s eldest

daughter, as well as a regular

figure in his drawings and family

life.

Mitzy had lived all her life in

the Dorset village, and spent

a miserable childhood with her

mother, who never showed

her any love or affection. The

Aubreys offered Mitzy a lifestyle

she had never known before.

As Zach begins to unravel

the past, Mitzy begins to reveal

her love of Charles and her

relationship with the family.

Mitzy’s love of Charles grows

from innocence to

obsession, from

childish infatuation

to something more

complex.

The story is

atmospheric and

detailed going

from Dorset to

Morocco and back

to Dorset.

Zach develops

a friendship

with Hannah

Brock. She is

Mitzy’s nearest

neighbour and

carries her own

secrets.

There are a number of different

story lines running through the

book, all are good.

The story splits between the

past and the present, and is well

structured.

The plot leaves you guessing

right to the end and I never got

the feeling I could see what was

going to happen.

The story combines a mystery,

several love stories as well as

ghosts, obsession and betrayal.

Just when you think you know

the answer, there is another

revelation that you never saw

coming. The characters are very

real and there are some good

twists.

I enjoyed this book but it does

start slowly and did take me a

few chapters to get into the plot

. I’m glad I stuck with it as I was

gripped by the end and couldn’t

put it down!

It is a good read, but think it

could have been a bit shorter.

The HIstory of Glass

From our earliest origins,

humans have been using

glass. Historians have

discovered that a form of

natural glass, obsidian -

formed for instance, within the

mouth of a volcano - was first

used as tips for spears.

Archaeologists have found

evidence of man-made glass

which dates back to 4000BC; this

took the form of glazes used for

coating stone beads. It was not

until 1500 BC that the first hollow

glass container was made by

covering a sand core with a layer

of molten glass.

Glass blowing became the

most common way to make

glass containers from the First

Century BC. However, the glass

made during this time was highly

coloured due to the impurities

of the raw material. It was not

until the First Century AD when

colourless glass was produced

and then coloured by the addition

of colouring materials.

The secret of glass making

came to Britain with the Romans.

However, the skills and technology

required were closely guarded by

the Romans and it was not until

their empire disintegrated that

glass-making skills spread through

Europe and the Middle East.

In Britain, there is evidence of a

glass industry around Jarrow and

Wearmouth dating to 680 AD, and

from the 13th Century in areas of

Surrey and Sussex.

A major milestone in the

history of glass occurred with the

invention of lead crystal glass

by George Ravenscroft. He

attempted to counter the effect

of clouding that could occur in

blown glass by introducing lead

to the raw materials. The new

glass he created was softer and

easier to decorate and had a

higher refractive index, adding to

its brilliance and beauty. It proved

invaluable to the optical industry

and optical lenses, astronomical

telescopes, microscopes and the

like became possible.

The modern glass industry

only started to develop in Britain

after the repeal of the Excise

Act in 1845 relieved the heavy

taxation that had been enforced

on the amount of glass melted in a

glasshouse.

Joseph Paxton’s Crystal Palace

at the Great Exhibition of 1851

marked the beginning of the

discovery of glass as a building

material.

By 1887 glass making developed

from traditional mouth-blowing to

a semi-automatic process when

Ashley introduced a machine

capable of producing 200 bottles

per hour in Castleford – more than

three times quicker than previously.

Twenty years later, in 1907, the

first fully automated machine was

developed in America making

2,500 bottles per hour.

Other developments followed

rapidly, but it was not until the First

World War, when Britain became

cut off from essential suppliers that

glass became part of the scientific

sector rather than just a craft.

Today, glass making is a modern,

hi-tech industry operating in a

competitive global market.

Few of us can imagine modern

life without glass. It features in

almost every aspect of our lives.

And looking into the future,

glass as will always exist as a

material in its own right but many

new applications and processes

are already involving glass in

combination with other materials.

Where’s that

from..?

Codswallop

Meaning - nonsense or rubbish

Derived from - the mid 1800s when a

certain soft drinks manufacturer, by the

name of Hiram Codd, invented a technique

for bottling lemonade. He inserted a

glass marble into the neck of the bottle

to act as a stopper. When the bottle was

shaken, the pressure from the fi zzy liquid

forced the marble against the neck, thus

forming a seal. This new invention quickly

became known as ‘The Codd Bottle’. Beer

drinkers belittled those who preferred the

taste of soft drinks to “wallop”, a slang

word for beer. They poked fun at them

by calling the lemonade in Hiram’s bottles

“codswallop”, inferring that it was rubbish

compared with real beer!

Words, and their meanings, change with

the passage of time, of course. However,

the phrase “a load of codswallop” doesn’t

appear until after the Second World War.

Derivations are often open to speculation

and are sometimes pure supposition.

It could just be that, in this particular

instance, the supposition is purely “a load

of codswallop”!
