Solace | Glass Wings is designed as a reflective memorial to the pandemic. The installation is made up of 160 individually blown glass feathers. Each feather will then be hung from the bones of the wings, forged in iron by Ryan Harms.

The installation of these glass wings will bring a new way of helping visitors and worshippers remember loved ones and contemplate all that has happened over the past year.

The Solace installation will be on display in the Cathedral until Friday 14 May. Admission to the Cathedral is free and full Covid-19 safety precautions will be in place.
