An impressive installation of contemporary stained glass to commemorate the life of famous WW1 poet Wilfred Owen has been erected - with its roots in Somerset.

The Dunsden Owen Association and All Saints Church in Oxfordshire celebrated the installation of the colourful window last week, created by award-winning artist Natasha Redina.

It casts a dazzling cascade of colours across the hallowed establishment where 17-year old Wilfred Owen stepped forward onto his poetic path during 1911-1913.

Redina, repeating her victory for a second year, won first prize for her design at the esteemed Stevens Architectural Glass Competition.

The locally-rooted project didn't stop at design, as Somerset-based glaziers restored and installed the masterpiece.

Specialist Dan Humphries and assistant India Savill, from Glastonbury, diligently assembled the window in Dunsden Green's All Saints Church.

Humphries crafted the bronze frame to support the radiant window, casting touches of Somerset across it.

Generously funded by community donations, Redina manufactured the vibrant window at Derix Glasstudio in Germany.

It covers a wide spectrum of carefully researched context, from Goethe’s colour wheel to the Dunsden Owen trail map.

It is an evocative testament to Owen's burgeoning gift, cultivated during his stay in Dunsden.

A blessing ceremony, scheduled on November 4, will be conducted by the Bishops of Oxford and Dorchester, with the church open to public viewing on the 5th from midday until 5pm.

An event will be held at Dunsden Village Hall featuring an artist's talk and a duo of films by Jennifer Leach, shedding light on the creation and philosophy behind the vibrant creation.

Continuing the Somerset connection, Redina also has local ties.

Her daughter, musician Naima Bock, was born in Shepton Mallet, and the family frequently visits Glastonbury, considering it a second home.

Humphries' wife, Sue, also contributes to the stained glass community, with classes at their workshop just off Glastonbury High Street.
