My sister made us this leaded glass piece, with beveled, clear glass and iridescent, frosted glass for a narrow bathroom window in our childhood home. Now it is mounted at our eastern-facing sink window. We love the prisms that the early morning light casts not only into the kitchen but also on living room walls and furniture.
However, on exceptionally cold days like today (-2 @ 8am), the frost patterns on the storm window accentuate the frost patterns in the leaded glass – art and life juxtaposed.
1 Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God;For it is pleasant and praise is becoming…16 He gives snow like wool; He scatters the frost like ashes.
Psalm 147:1,16 (NIV)
