"Star Of The Sea"
"Star of the Sea" has been looked upon since early centuries as a guiding
light for sailors in stormy seas from the Blessed Virgin Mary. Several coastal
Catholic churches bear this name. After hurricane Rita destroyed my studio
in 2005, I replaced the damaged stained glass in several churches including
Our Lady Star of the Sea in Cameron, LA.
As I reflected on how such a star could be interpreted in glass, this is what I
came up with...a calming peaceful energy radiating from the center in blues,
greens and pinks.
The piece is also slumped after the 1st firing to create a scalloped effect
around the outer edges.
Can be installed either as a square or a diamond. The metal is polished to
radiate outward from the center, then coated with automotive clear coat so it
is durable in outdoor living spaces.
Sizes: 16"X16" 24"X24" 26"X 26"
