Celtic Cross Window
I was asked to create a window for an Episcopal priest moving from California’s Central Valley to serve a church in Oahu. She chose the color of the Celtic cross. The upper quadrants suggest the bread and wine of the Communion service. Frank Lloyd Wright designed an abstract wheat stalk, which I adapted into a stalk bending in the wind (the red chunk suggests a ladybug). The central valley is well suited for table (and wine) grapes.
The lower left quadrant suggests a Hawaiian plumeria, and the lower right depicts the “hanging lobster claw” (heliconia) which flourishes in “the islands.”
