Stained glass windows in Angels & Gypsies restaurant, which is part of the "Church Street Hotel". Brothers Jose and Mel Raido - owners and originators created unique space, appreciated by clients and critics. The restaurant was named as one of the 20 best in the UK in 2013 according to The Times ( ranking published in the issue of November 6, 2013). The Raido brothers are also the creators of the popular Communion Bar, where you'll find our another stained glass windows.
Stained glass are referring to the name of the restaurant. They were performed in two stages. First, in 2007, we created "Angels and Gypsies" cycle for the ground floor of the building. Three stained glass windows: "Angels and Dancing Gypsy", "Dancer", "Gypsy Camp" can be seen from the outside of the restaurant. The fourth stained glass window: "Camp by the fire" hangs on the wall inside, as a highlighted decorative picture.
In the second stage, in 2013, the newly developed "Communion Bar" in the basement of the building was filled with 15 illuminated stained-glass windows. Religious themes are visible where one enter to the basement: "Jacob's Ladder", "Trinity" - a set of three stained-glass windows, "The Golden Calf" and a set of nine stained-glass windows - portraits - "Expulsion from Paradise" and "The struggle between Good and Evil." The bar is decorated with "Passage of the Jews through the Red Sea." This stained glass panel fills the space under the counter by mapping its shape - bent in an arc.
