Fruit colored squares give the impression of a beautiful stained glass window. Stained glass is a timeless art form used for over a thousand years in churches and other important buildings to depict religious figures and scenes. Although beautiful to behold they were also used to control light in a building rather than to let light in. Because of their lasting craftsmanship many of these original works have survived the test of time. Stained glass is also used to create lampshades and other 3-dimensional sculptures. Today stained glass works are not limited by religious themes but rather can be anything the artisan desires. From the traditional to the absurd and everything in between.
