Publicis London invited Creative Resins to help create the “Glass of Thrones” – a series of stained-glass installations, the first of which can be seen in the grounds of Belfast City Hall. There will be a further five equalling six in total, creating a “fan trail” across the city.
Driven by fan search data, the windows creatively depict the most loved and talked about moments from the show from the past 9 years. Publicis London has previously worked with illustrators and local artists to create and install Doors of Thrones, in which a series of 10 carved doors which represented a specific episode from season six were installed in pubs around the country. They also worked on a stunning 80-metre Bayeux Tapestry which is hung in the Ulster Museum in Belfast.

“Creative Resins were thrilled to have been invited to take part in the latest project which involved creating six beautiful free-standing stained-glass windows, each representing one of the show’s iconic houses. Game of Thrones® is one of, if not the biggest TV shows of all time. To help be part of a project commemorating the final series and to help produce such stunning artwork was really an honour” said Patrick Sumner, Director at Creative Resins.
The Creative Resins Wizard Machine was used to create the outline resembling traditional lead, the machine applies our unique H2O resin as a liquid that cures and hardens to the glass.
Creative Resins mixed and supplied a combinations of resins to create the decorative leading effect that was then supplied to an expert artist, who mixed each window’s detailed colour palette. Our machine technician Liam Sawyer who ran the glass panels said, ‘I love Game of Thrones, and as an avid viewer it was an honour to be involved in such an amazing project’.
