Stained glass

For me one of the most beautiful forms of artistic expression there is is stained glass.

Wander round your local area and you will come across some stunning examples of stained glass. Most are in churches, some in private dwellings, some in schools: some modern, some ancient , some abstract, some telling a story, some just revelling in a juxtaposition of brilliant colours to form a glorious design. I love them all. Here are some of my favourites:

Kaleidoscopic!

Biblical

Parables

Illustrative

Tonal harmony

Muted colours

Simple lines

Bold Design
Traditional

Sunlit

Mosaic-tastic!


Monochrome

Remembrance


Joy

Stained glass images reflect the artist’s skill, imagination and his desire to represent the human condition – the triumphs, the tribulations, the suffering and the celebration.
