Completed commission: Altar frontal by Anne Creasey
commission4mission's 10th commission, an altar frontal by Anne Creasey, was installed today at Christ Church Thames View. The frontal has been created by Anne in time for Christ Church's Easter Day services.
The all year round altar frontal features the colours of the Church calendar and incorporates a central cross in gold surmounted by the sun. The sun's rays also form pentecostal flames while the ball of the sun equates to the host raised above the chalice. Stunning from a distance, the frontal's design also repays closer inspection through the intricate details of Anne's embroidery and appliqué work, particularly on the ball of the sun and its rays.
