These twelve windows fill the exterior wall of a new chapel created for prayer, small services, and to house the parish's columbarium.
Conceptual Rendering; St Thomas Chapel Windows
These windows were designed and built for a new columbarium chapel for St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church in Nassau Bay, Texas. The left grouping portrays the story of St. Thomas and Jesus. The right grouping portrays Christ as the Good Shepherd. In the center is depicted the Holy Spirit.
The Good Shepherd
Fused glass artworks are designed, cut and assembled. They are then heated in a kiln, frequently requiring multiple firings and specific heating and cooling schedules, until the pieces and parts are fused and shaped by the heat.
I enjoy creating fused art that is sometimes utilitarian and sometimes not, and I particularly enjoy the challenge of using fusing techniques to create elements that will then be incorporated into my stained glass works.
