Window of the Week: Boreas
Inspired by the 1903 John William Waterhouse painting titled Boreas, we created this window as a showroom piece in early 2012. The piece is now part of a private collection in Iowa. This highly detailed window has several layers of glass and the face and arm are hand painted and kiln fired.
Boreas is the god of the North Wind, and the image shows a girl in flowing draperies buffeted by the wind as she travels through a blustery spring landscape.
