Glass has always been a spectacular medium for artistic expression.  Much was made in the days of old – before artificial lighting about how art on these windows could be  observed inside during the day with the sunlight pouring in or at night outside with the light of the candles illuminating the figures to passers by. It is probably one of humanity’s basic urges to find a surface to tell stories and windows were no exception.
