Here are a few shots of the making process of these medieval reproductions. Click on the gallery below for a brief description of how they were made!
These replica artefacts of a Chalice and Pyx were commissioned to help tell the story of Delepre Abbey’s separation from the Catholic Church in 1536. Each object is slightly oversized but otherwise authentic. They are designed and fabricated in a combination of carbon enforced resin and tulipwood to withstand robust handling from the public. The wood chalice is painted to resemble aged pewter with replica cabochon stones and the pyx painted gold with ultramarine enamel.
