Secular stained glass

These windows grace the lobby of a vibrant eldercare residential facility in central Massachusetts. Their presence both softens and 'de-institutionalizes' the space.
 

Remembering loved ones through the creation of stained glass memorials is a time honored tradition. These installations were gifted by two families to honor and memorialize their loved ones. Two of the three honored had been residents of the facility. The windows continue to live on in their memory.

The impact, as is always the case with stained glass, changes throughout the day and throughout the year.

“When glass artists Mark Liebowitz and Nancy Katz of Buckland got married last June, they decided they wanted to give ‘a little wedding gift’ to the community—- a stained glass transom, to be fitted above the entrance to Memorial Hall that characterized the beauty of the village.”

Diane Broncaccio, July 27, 2010

The Recorder, Greenfield, Massachusetts.

Contributing to the local community is a value Nancy Katz/Wilmark holds dear.

To date they have gifted their small town a transom for one of its most trafficked buildings as well as probably the only leaded panel for a gardening shed for the village's famed Bridge of Flowers, which is actually the principle design element of the transom.

While most stained glass windows are installed in a vertical plane, such is not always the case. Many traditional buildings have a grand skylight filled with leaded windows.

 

This client asked Nancy to design a decorative window illustrating doves of peace above Jerusalem for the skylight in the front foyer of their home.

This panel was collaboratively designed with a couple who share a therapy office.

They spent time with us in our studio tweaking the design and selecting the glass from our large inventory. They enjoyed the process. The panel is reinforced in order that it may hang freely in a window, rather than as a permanent installation.

A call came from an interior designer requesting the creation of windows for a new home under construction. There were existing openings for 2 panels in the dining room & one upstairs in a stairwell & into a lavatory off of a dressing room.

The designer served as the go-between with the client, providing us with a tour of the house and shared images of design elements to be incorporated in the space--- wall coverings, ceiling treatments, light sconces, and the like.

A panel to celebrate the 30th anniversary of a couple was commissioned by the groom who gave us little direction as to the details. 

 

The only directive was that it fit in a space in their family home in a location that historically served as shelving for light-catching prisms, and that it would be nice not to lose the opportunity to cast color. Beveled glass served that goal.

The couple are the parents of an adult child, making them a family of three represented by the three colored roundels in the center above the green heart shaped leaf.

The three theme is repeated to represent the 30 years of marriage.

As it happens, Nancy gifted this couple with a quilt for their wedding 30 years earlier.

We were asked to create a traditionally painted stained glass interpretation of an image from the natural world. 

Collaboration between the clients and Nancy to develop the composition, which was then painted by ‘Miracle Dave,’ provided a satisfying experience for all.
