My own church, St Andrews at Wollescote, and we put a
window in there. And I didn't design it, the architect designed it and I
had to carry it out. He wanted it showing the flames of the Trinity and he
wanted it be painting his little baptistery completely black, the walls,
so that the flames would appear to be coming out of the font, as you moved
about the church, and that's a little pebble window on either side of it.
It was almost a black ruby glass I used at the bottom, and shading up and
shading up through deep red, pale red, orange, amber up to gold that you
see at the top. Like that. Very effective it does look, when the sun's
shining on it.
And the pebble windows, also, this is more some
sweepings up of the floor, you know, little bits of scrap, all leaded now,
like that into little circles and rings. And it looks very effective
because itís very deep and dark glass and with the black paint on the
walls it brings out the colour more than anything.
