St Edward's Catholic Church
Throughout the church are a series of windows that depict saints, which are rendered with acid etching on clear glass. The windows were approximately 2' x 6'.
The intent of the design was for the figures to blend in with the exterior view as a reminder that they are a part of our daily world in spirit. The figures were rendered in a manner where the exterior view formed the negative parts of the composition, bringing the exterior and the interior together in one plane. The windows are also seen with reflected light from the exterior for those who pass by the church or those who approach it for worship.
I worked closely with the priest and the committee in the development of the designs
