I was absolutely blown away this summer by the Stained Glass Museum found at the Navy Pier at Chicago's waterfront. Not only is the quantity overwhelming, but the quality even more so.
Who even knew there was such a thing?
It's always nice to trip across a beautifully done glass window (of which there are many here in Toronto- just take a trip through Mount Pleasant Cemetery and peak into the odd mausoleum as an example) but to encounter so many in one place was just awe inspiring.
Of prominence were the windows of the Louis Comfort Tiffany Studios- so many of his finest works all in one place, and many very familiar to those who have been doing or appreciating stained glass for any length of time. I mean, I've got many a book with these windows in them- and now I was fortunate enough to see, examine and appreciate them up close and personal.
Over the next while we'll be posting them on our website- go here- as well as putting them up on our Facebook page (look for Fantasy In Glass and even Figimodo who has his own page).
On a separate note, Fantasy In Glass used to be on Twitter several years ago. We've revived that as well. Just search for Fantasy In Glass and you should be able to find us.
