“Stories in Stained Glass”

 

Susan Harries

 

Stained glass tells stories.  It has been used to play politics, bribe bishops, recruit soldiers and tell jokes.  The most remarkable subjects appear in its panes, from miracles to Mandela, tanks to Tiffany, Burne-Jones's water-closet to Churchill's cigar.  It is a powerful way to create atmosphere and send a message - not just in churches, but in airports, sports centres, town halls, banks, libraries and shops.  Susie will include its stories in our area:  our saints and sinners.
