Window of the Week: Two Sisters
Commissioned by a New York client in 2009, the Two Sisters window is based on the iconic 1881 painting by Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Successfully translating Impressionist style paintings into stained glass is always a challenge because the paintings lack definition and stained glass must have hard lines between the individual pieces of glass. The effects of light and shadow were achieved by creating the window with three plated layers of glass.
