Contemporary Vestments - “Trinity”

Commissioned by the Dean and Chapter of Winchester Cathedral.

The Holy Trinity is rich in imagery, and the image which inspired Lucy was that of the triangle, one of the fundamental structures and archetypal shapes known to humanity. So in the chasuble the equilateral triangle is subtly present, undergirding all and encompassing the Tree of Life, as the life of all creation. The Tree of Life is also present in more abstract form on the dalmatic, in the triangular trefoil of red, green and gold silk.
