Default I contributed (in a very small way)

These two windows, over 12 feet tall were made by a friend and neighbor and just installed in the church. I had the pleasure of watching the construction on an almost daily basis. Each piece of coloured glass was carefully cut freehand and assembled with silicone onto sheets of 6 mm laminated glass. The rosary consists of brown half round glass beads, 12mm diameter and 6mm thick. at the end is a cross, this was my contribution, it's made from two pieces of Jarrah using a halving joint. I estimate that something like 300 hours went into the making plus about ten hours to fit the Aluminium frames, the walls were FAR from true!

Seldom see glass windows like that in churches anymore. They all seem to have thin paper on the inside of the windows with the designs on them. Which is OK, but doesn't approach the class of real colored glass.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
