Victoria High Mass Set - Gold

 VICTORIA HIGH MASS SET This set is inspired by various collections in the Victoria Albert Museum from its colour scheme to the cutting. The shape of the chasuble is Semi Gothic and the lining is made out of coral red cotton linen. One of the greatest feature of this chasuble is the braids and orphrey are specially made. The braid are inspired by the chasuble given by St Augustine Abbey, Ramsgate to VA Museum. It is designed by A.W.N Pugin and probably made around 1848 for the Abbey. The orphrey's pattern are inspired by a carved silver pyx made in the 18th century. The colour are specially selected to contrast with the braid along. The emblem of IHS is specially embroidered with gold thread and blue silk. It is adorned with 4 fleur de lys around the four corners. Each end of the orphreys are finished with a crown of gold.

McDougall Chasuble - Gold

McDougall Chasuble - Gold

This Chasuble is another series of vestments fusing the elements of South East Asian by using Songket ( Cloth of Gold of Malay ) with an English pattern orphrey. This is to commemorate the event of the early missionary work of the late bishop Francis Thomas McDougall.

Inculturation in South East Asia has open the door of creativity in many ways, such as liturgical arts.

Songket is one of the best fabric in my opinion to depict the beauty of cloth of gold in South East Asia. Very often it is weaved with geometry or floral pattern.

To make the chasuble fit to the climate of South East Asia, i had chosen to lined it with natural cotton silk blend to reduce the weight and thickness.

Composition : ( Body ) Silk/Rayon/Lurex/Gold thread
( Lining ) Red cotton silk
