The Stations of The Cross in Our Lady of Lourdes, Milton Keynes.

In 1975 Norman completed ceramic Stations of the Cross for The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, Milton Keynes. These tiles are deliberately simple, telling the story of the passion. They were completed at the time when Norman's father was very ill, dying before the tiles were completed. For Norman they became a requiem for his father. The church also has an excellent web-site (http://www.ourladyoflourdes.org.uk/) where they also show photographs of the stations.
