Flight of Souls {detail} by WonderlandGlass
Clear

This section of the Tiffany window symbolizes the victory of rebirth (Easter Lilies) over the powers of the sleep of death (poppies). The unequalled qualities of Tiffany’s glass are present here in varied forms and textures. Wade Chapel is located in Lake View Cemetery, Cleveland, Ohio and is one of only a few complete interiors designed and constructed by L.C. Tiffany and Company {with a little help from his friends}.

from the cemetery’s web site: Wade Chapel’s interior is illuminated by the awe-inspiring stained glass window, The Flight of Souls, by which the consummation of the Divine Promise is depicted. Created in Tiffany’s signature “Favrile” method, where opalescent, iridescent, and translucent pieces of glass are layered to create rich, deep colors, it’s apparent the intended focus of the Chapel is the window. Before being installed, the window won a gold medal during the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris, giving it credibility as an important example of Tiffany’s highly- prized ecclesiastical work.

A child of the 50’s, a survivor of the 60’s, my main artistic outlets are stained glass and photography. I have operated my glass studio since 1976 and have works all over the U.S. I originally entered university to study photographic journalism, but as John Lennon wrote, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” I do not use PS or other manipulations in my photographs, just adjusted settings on the camera.
