Ely Cathedral is hosting the glass sculpture, Solace, in its Lady Chapel as a reflective memorial to the pandemic.

The 10ft high exhibit is made up of over 100 individually sculpted glass feathers by artist Layne Rowe and these glass “angel” wings are to support visitors and worshippers as they remember loved ones and contemplate all that has happened over the past year.

Made up of around 100 glass feathers, each one has been individually hot sculpted and hung from the bones of the wings, which have been forged in iron by artist Ryan Harms.
