Shown here are three of the five stained glass windows I created for a Messianic church in Denver, Colorado. The designs were modern renditions of the 100+ year old stained glass that had originally been installed in this building, which was originally a synagogue. The original windows had been moved to the current location of that synagogue, so I was able to photograph them and recreate the designs as nearly as possible.
Each large stained glass artwork is actually made up of twenty smaller rectangular panels, making the construction more difficult but the installation easier.
The third photo has a black triangle at the upper left because this window was located behind a staircase.
The lettering is black glass-paint (made from actual black glass ground to a powder and mixed with a substrate). Once painted, the glass was fired in a kiln to make the paint a permanent part of the glass.
These stained glass panels were constructed with lead came, the right choice for most large projects. All lead and solder were darkened to a charcoal gray with a chemical patina.
