This piece contains original memoriam glass from a church which has been cut and repurposed into a new stained glass window. Many stained glass windows come through the restoration studio with gnarled lead came and memoriam glass coated in thick layers of dust and dirt. By "re-homing' the memory of these persons in a new stained glass window, I hope to be able to better accept my own fears of the inedibility of death and distract myself, and the viewer, through the use of vibrant colors and moving geometric shapes. With this repurposing, I am continuing the life cycle of the glass and the memory of the person for another 100 years.
