Sanctuary Window: 8’ diameter / Narthex Window: 3’ x 6’
First Community Church, Hilliard Ohio
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.
