St. Alban’s Church in Albany, California, asked if I could replace three panels of amber glass over the entrance to their Parish Hall — the panels had sustained some damage. I proposed a decorative window which would be an expansion of a Celtic Cross pattern and would incorporate rondel and bevels as well. They welcomed my design, and over several weeks I constructed the window in three sections.
For a while I was on a Celtic Cross pattern obsession — maybe I still am. The glass I used for the cross on the lower left was given to me by a friend who had saved it from a high school class — it still had the label: made in West Germany. I made this cross for her, and then started making lots of others. They came in handy for various “Thank You” gifts.
I placed all these Celtic crosses into frames. The window on the upper right shows the eye screws that I used for wires to hang the windows.
