The ladder is an exact cast in glass of an old, worn, wooden ladder found in the North Tower of Durham cathedral. Each grain and indentation of the wood has been captured in the glass.

The Practical Impossibility of Faith was fired in the largest kiln in Europe, at the National Glass Centre and was funded by the Arts Council North East and the Chaplaincy For The Arts.
