I was back in the stained glass shop last week working on a couple of projects. I paused from the windows that I am working on in the monastery in order to work on a personal project. I made a design for the half circle window opening in my monastery room. The top of most windows in the renovated monastery has a 26.5″ wide and 12.5″ tall semi circle. I recently acquired glass from a shop in St. Joseph, Missouri, so that I could work on this project.
Take a look at the progress. Above: The design worked up in Adobe InDesign.
