The window tells the story

Stained glass specialist, Steve Sheriff, shares how windows can communicate a story or stories to people through the ages

The window tells the story

IN 2001 WE WERE COMMISSIONED by Wool Methodist Church to produce a millennium East window to celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ.

An explanation
Church windows emanate from a period when they had to visually tell a story because the congregation were in the majority illiterate. Fortunately, today this is not so, although we still make windows that tell a story, but the story is one that we can more reflect upon and interpret in different ways. Not all symbolism will have the same meaning for everyone.
