Tapestry Window – Glass Installation

The ‘Tapestry’ project is a suite of 31 thick, fused glass windows for
the St. Katharine Drexel Chapel. The woven pattern alludes to the
ceremonial Kente cloth used by the priests during mass and a
colored numerical scheme based on the Catholic Trinity. Drawing
inspiration from Barnett Newman’s abstract Stations of the Cross,
varying sized areas of color were subtracted and replaced with
clear glass – subtly changing the pattern so each window is unique,
making the tapestry seem animate, and marking the journey of
Christ in absence of any figure.
