We were given this Icon by the stained glass committee to reproduce for their new chapel. One does not change an icon. We created the highlights for this window by acid etching european flash glass that is blow clean and dipped into a colored glass. The background was stippled onto a golden piece of glass to look like parchment. Glass jewels were used in the crown surrounded by small pieces of beveled glass for highlights. The faces and hands we delicately painted over a period of four firings in the kilns.
