In 1969 Beverley Shore Bennett designed the font for St Paul's Cathedral, Wellington. It was as a result of this that the Dean of the time, Walter Hurst, invited her to design the Holm Window for the Cathedral. This was the start of Beverley's career as a designer of ecclesiastical stained glass, a subject she had studied under Frederick Ellis at the Wellington Technical College Art Department in 1946-1947. The window was constructed in the studio of Roy Miller of Dunedin, and Beverley Shore Bennett produced designs for Miller Studios from 1969 until the studio closed in 1987. The craftsman at Miller Studios that made the greatest number of her windows up until its closure, was Paul Hutchins, a Welshman, who joined the firm in 1977. From about 1990 to the early 2000s the crafsman employed on making the windows was Stephen Belange-Taylor, a Royal College of Art London trained stained glass maker, who worked in Britain, France, Canada and the USA as well as New Zealand.
