Working with the stained glass committee, we were given symbols that were importnat to the congregation. Many of the symbols were from children’s educational materials and literature collected over the years. It was our job to use our expertise and skill to interpret these symbols in art glass.
A wispy, iridescent white glass was chosen for the background for it’s ethereal quality. The symbols at the top were executed in stained glass, while some of the images were enhanced by painting. Beveled glass was used in the circles to add sparkle and light as if the symbols were an opening in our background of wispy white. We chose the scrolls because we felt they gave a historical look to the scriptures. The lion and lily are just two of the many symbols we created specifically for St. Peter Baptist Church
