Capo D’ Opera, or ‘masterpiece’, was inspired by my trip to Italy in July 2015.

Taken aback by the beautiful Italian architecture and drew particular inspiration from the gothic cathedral in Milan, the Duomo di Milano.

I was heavily influenced by the nine gigantic stained glass windows present within the walls of the breath- taking cathedral. Taking detailed photographs of each of the individual windows, I was able to study the shapes and forms that were created and develop a series of four stylised circles that are repeated and altered through out the piece. Once the design was laser cut it then had the potential to appear as if the frames for the stained glass.
