Exhibition

A celebration of faith in craft through collaborations with leading craftsmen in wood, brass, and stone, designer-makers Chris Eckersley and Gareth Neal have the pleasure of presenting the new Sanctuary furnishings at the Our Lady of Victory church in Kensington, London.

Initially approached by Linley’s design director Carmel Allen, designer-makers Chris Eckersley and Gareth Neal were introduced to Monsignor Jim Curry who was looking for design ideas for the newly restored church Sanctuary. From there began an amazing journey following the footsteps of a traditional commission for the furnishings of the Our Lady of Victories catholic church in Kensington, London. Over the last 2 years, they have worked on the creation of original pieces, collaborating with the UK's leading craftsmen in wood, brass, and stone. This unique opportunity has involved in-depth historical research and the result is a humble ode to Sanctuary furnishing design.
