Scroll Down For Amazing Scrollwork… In Glass!

The stained glass of  Sint-Romboutskathedraal (St. Rumbold’s Cathedral) in Mechelen, Belgium has drawn me back like a magnet. This time the window I’m in awe of  is full of what I will call “ribbons”… flowing scrollworks that often contain text and are beautifully arranged into the design. These photographs are also here because they are part of my “art inspiration file” . I think I will let this post speak for itself…

    • Tilly,
      I think you can figure out from the glass window I saved up for, that I adore stained glass… I think I missed my vocation (and century) I’d have loved to have been (ok, tried to have been)… a glass painter in Victorian times when a massive amount of stained glass was made. These people were seriously skilled artists.
