Strangest Genius: The Stained Glass of Harry Clarke
Harry Clarke (1889–1931) was undoubtedly Ireland's greatest stained glass artist. During his short life Harry created stained glass windows for churches, private dwellings, and commercial venues throughout Ireland and England, as well as in the United States and Australia. Also an illustrator of books for Harrap and Co. in London, Harry illustrated five books that show his undoubted genius in the area of graphic art. In total 174 windows and a small number of panels were created by Harry Clarke. This book contains the entire stained glass collection of Harry Clarke, including those windows now in art galleries. This collection has never before been photographed or published in its entirety, and will give those who are unfamiliar with the brilliance and originality of Clarke’s marvelous stained glass windows the opportunity to view images of his greatest creations.
A colorufl international survey of stained glass in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.Some see stained glass as the art of painting in space; to others, it is a way of transforming light into a play of colors and images. Stained glass windows allow the shaping and blending of light within architectural spaces. Color, texture, transparency, design, and composition are all elements that can be varied and explored to create new light effects and bring space to its full potential.The twentieth century, with its architectural revolution in methods and materials, opened up new possibilities for stained glass. During the last thirty years, a great many projects have been created all over the world, in both new buildings and historical churches and institutions. Studies of this phenomenon have been rare until now, and this book is a pioneer in the survey of this fascinating field.Xavier Barral i Altet is a lecturer in the history of art and former Director of the National Art Museum of Catalonia.

We’ve heard the narrative that millennials are done with the institutional church; they’ve packed up and left. This book is an alternative to that story and chronicles the journey of millennials who are investing their lives in the institution because they believe in the church’s resurrecting power. Through anecdotes and interviews, Rob Lee takes readers on a journey toward God’s unfolding future for the church, a beloved institution in desperate need of change.

How to Restore 18th Century Church Stained Glass Windows
Century Stained Glass
Today I visited my dear friend Teresa who was doing some restoration work with the Stained Glass Windows
on St Marys Church in Upokongaro near Wanganui..
This Church dates back to the 1870's and is part of New Zealands Heritage and because the stained glass windows are so spectacular and so old I thought it would be something to share with viewers.
In New Zealand there are very few people who can undertake such work and Teresa willingly shows how to undertake and re-cement the stained glass ...
