St. Thomas Aquinas Priory
Charlottesville, Virginia

Stained Glass Rose Window Sacred Heart of Jesus

One of our most spectacular projects, a pair of Rose Windows custom designed and created for the new St. Thomas Aquinas Priory in Charlottesville, Virginia. The Dominican Friars that live at the Priory will pray in the chapel where these windows live five times a day. Each individual symbol is placed to instruct the faithful, as well as inspire prayer, which hearkens back to the purpose of stained glass back in ancient times. Each individual painted piece was fired multiple times, and painted using antique processes and techniques. The Dominicans are an old order, and new-style windows wound’t suit their new home.
