    Stained glass as a hobby and artform...

    I'm quite into creating images with stained glass. It is quite labor intensive imho but the results are well worth the effort.

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    stained glass

    Stained glass can be an artform. If you look up my profile you will see a
    lot of stained glass that's about 82 to 84 years old and the light fixtures
    shine like jewelery. I've never done any stained glass but I know that it
    can be beautiful. Welcome aboard!

    Some of my best inspirations for composing music come from stained glass. Not just the pictorial images, but the colors and the manor in which ambient light transfers from one side to another. I hear music every time I look at these ... an awesome experience, at least for me.

    Hi Krummhorn - Hi Methodistgirl,

    Yeah, one can imagine the composers of great organ music e.g from France, enjoyed the riot of colour to be seen at St. Ouen in Rouen, Notre Dame in Paris, Chartres Cathedral, Beauvais, Bayeux, Bayonne, Laon...and the list goes on...

    Cheers,

    Corno Dolce


    Btw, thanx for your warm welcome methodistgirl. :-)

    The church I attend (Christ Church St. Laurence) has a hideous stained glass window of our saint ... complete with his griddle ... makes my blood run cold thinking about it.

    You'll see the poor bugger in the choir photo link (above), it's the stainedglass window on the left hand side of the screen. The griddle is the purple thing to left of his knees ... yikes.

    Our sunday school did a kind of representation over christmas. Now OK this was not stained Glass, but see through plastic stuck on, but it gave them a feel of what it was like to create and design such things.

    I saw the most beautiful thing yesturday at my church. We have a stain
    glass window with a yellow crown and the sun was shining right through
    that crown. The sight almost had me in tears while I listened to the
    preacher and the sun stayed right in that crown until after one oclock
    when services were over.
