OverviewThis hat was inspired by the Prisoners of Conscience stained glass window in Salisbury Cathedral’s Trinity Chapel, designed by Gabriel Loire of Chartres in the 1980s. This informs the lancet shapes, although here they are stacked, and my choice of colour; the stained glass is worked predominantly in striking blues which have an amazing luminosity.
