The colours aree wonderful. The design is quite different from the usual stained glass in other churches.
Bill Phillips: I have never seen anything like it Alan

These figures are lost in another world
Bill Phillips: There is a dream like quality to these windows I think (I normally try to avoid thinking too much )
Fascinants ces vitraux !
Bill Phillips: They were Claudine
As you said yesterday I will no doubt find the entire window as something quite different if I get to see it in September.
Bill Phillips: I hope you do find time to see it, and the rest of the abbey. It is a lovely building

i think it's the prettiest stained glass i've ever seen
Bill Phillips: It is very fine and modern too
Trees are the theme here and their pathways.
Bill Phillips: I can see what you mean Mary
usually enjoy seeing stained or faceted class windows when I travel.

When I worked for/with a church architect, who had been the architect for Strathmoor Methodist Church on the west side of Detroit that I attended in the late 60s until my first wife, our sons and I moved to Florida I got to meet a couple stained glass and faceted glass artists.

One of the faceted glass artists I got to know later in Boynton Beach where he had his studio and home.

Conrad Pickel was his name.
Bill Phillips: I was very impressed by these windows in Tewkesbury Abbey.
