This oculus stained glass window is installed high in the rear of the sanctuary. Being a memorial piece, it is designed to uplift the human spirit with its vibrant coloration, graceful line work, and joyful character. "Stars" - clear glass jewels - provide an accent of sparkling sunlight.

The glasses used in this window were mouth blown in Germany. The slight variation in the thickness of each glass sheet results in a gentle shading. Cindy Kessler uses this shading to imbue her works with a wonderfully nuanced, dynamic quality - a life and energy that only mouth blown glass can provide. To see a video showing how glass is mouth blown, check out the 7 minute video on our web-page: www.kesslerstudios.com/blow-a-sheet-of-glass.

Working with Lamberts full antique glasses from Germany allows Cindy to use the inherent shading of the material to full artistic potential.
