On Monday, August 15, Pastor Adam Hamilton went to Pasadena for the day to see the progress on the Leawood stained glass window. Judson Studios has 50 of the 161 panels completed and will begin shipping these in the next few weeks to begin installation on September 19. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the window, with Pastor Adam’s comments.
You’ll never see Christ’s feet this close – from 100 feet the colors blend together like an impressionist’s painting, but I wanted you to see the detail in each piece of glass.
You can see here ten of the 161 three by five foot panels in various phases of completion. Above is the galaxy from the top of the window representing God the Father, Maker of Heaven and Earth. In the lower right portion of those panels is the image of Mary the other of Jesus looking upon her infant son. In the eight panels in the foreground you can see the foot of Mary Magdalene, as she weeps at the tomb of Christ before she realizes that he’s been raised, and the flowers from that garden tomb. The river she dips her foot in runs through the entire window from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22.
Here are the tray-drawers where each of the 161 panels are kept as they are being completed – there are more drawers on the back side of these. On the left are the various glasses and frits used in the construction of the window.
