Light through Glass
Light through glass—the two elements complementing and completing each other. An alchemy to something fine and transformative of the spirit as well. Roman glass seems to have absorbed the light into itself over the aeons. Stained glass—glass colored with metallic salts— has radiated spiritual grace in churches and cathedrals since medieval times. Light itself is holy, but in glass it is somehow utterly exalted.
