Stained glass is a very labor intensive, time consuming, and tedious process. Many steps are involved when creating any glass window, even more so in a figurative work such as this. The process begins with posing models in period clothing and shooting hundreds of photos to get the perfect image.

At that point, a sketch can be rendered allowing the illustrators to become familiar with and adept at rendering the images, especially the faces and bodies. 

Once glass pieces are cut (painted and fired when necessary), they can be fitted together and secured with lead. This image shows pieces of natural stone that have been polished and cut along with the glass. A favorite technique we often use is the inclusion of historic bits and pieces of realia.
