I've loved stained glass windows since I was a child. Our house had three long windows on our landing that were originally a heavy stained glass, but my parents had them replaced with diamond-paned leaded glass windows that brightened up the area and made it easier for my mother to see what the four of us were doing in the back yard. There was a great window seat and it was the perfect place to sit and read.
When I was at Housewerks, I noticed all of the stained glass panels they have hanging from the rafters of their building. Many of the pieces have come out of old house that are being demolished, or from churches that have closed. This piece isn't very old, but the design with the opaque glass is wonderful. One of my favourite pictures of glass from Housewerks was taken at a Halloween party there two years ago. The building has a huge basement, which they'd flooded with a fog machine. The chandelier against the stained glass panel floating in the fog always appealed to me.
