Overview

Goals

This was the second project developed for the church. After completion of 3 complex stained glass windows for the same room.

Process

The images show the second cross created for this project as well as revisions to the back-lighting system. The revisions in the back-light setup were done after the client suggested that the pixelated lighting did not provide the desired calming effect the room is intended to produce.
