Tom Denny Stained Glass Hereford Cathedral

I was very taken with these stained glass windows celebrating the life of John Traherne,  an English poet, clergyman, theologian and religious writer born in c.1636. The windows are by Tom Denny, an artist who has produced windows for several other cathedrals including Durham and Leicester. His windows are noted for the distinctive way in which light and colour move across the surface. He achieves this effect by acid etching and silver staining each small piece of glass. The reflections in the last two images from Hereford recalled stained glass to me.
