A winning success is the design of 3 pairs of Glass Doors for St Andrew Cathedral.? It is a direct result of Edward’s interest in glass technology in teaching and in research.?Using advanced Cast Glass Technology - also used in the making of Hobbo Space Telescope - the design attempts to fuse the relationship between traditional craft base techniques and space age scientific methods, and the relationship between design and the application of advanced technology.
