Chapel at St. Dominic’s

2 Donor Wall 2.2

Design by Andrew Cary Young

 

The narrative theme for the donor wall creates a moving and meaningful image to honor the Lord in his house of worship.   Those that contribute to the building of the chapel have a place to receive recognition for their generosity.  The cross saltire suggests His presence during the passion of Christ and the purple robe His victory over death. Interlocking circles of the chapel quatrefoil form are repeated in the pattern of color in the glass tiles in the wall.  The green suggests the beauty of the earthly realm and the blues the grace given by the Holy Spirit.READ MORE

Let Your Light So Shine

 

This is an oldie but goodie. In my search for videos about the studio I remember this one done by Videographer Greg Gibson. Greg is a member of First United Methodist Church in Clinton, Mississippi. He walked through the entire process from design to installation on one of their windows. From that stand point it is pretty interesting. Besides, it was filmed before my hair turned grey! It is 14 minutes long………~ Andy Young

Paying Attention

Paying Attention 03312015
Paying attention is an important thing to do. Especially if you live where I do. In the spring time there is a moment when all of the trees begin to leaf out. Each species of tree has its own signature color of leaf buds in the early part of spring. If you pay attention you can see that the trees along your path are as varied as a crowd of people. You will notice that they stand out individually, if you take the time to see them.READ MORE

Broadcast Television News Tonight

Pearl River Glass Studio will be featured tonight on the television news program ‘Making Money with Charles Payne’, which airs on Fox Business Network on your cable provider. The segment will air today, around 5:55 Central Time. There will also be an article about the studio that will be posted later tonight. As soon as the article is up I will post a link. I suspect that at some point I can share a link the news broadcast segment as well.

Behind the Scenes

We would like to give you a tour through the creation of our most recent architectural art glass installation. It was done in collaboration with Dean and Dean Architects and is located at the new Columbus Orthopaedic Clinic and Outpatient Surgery Center here in Mississippi. READ MORE

I Like to Call it Glassy

This sample was just made in our kiln formed glass studio by Amelia Key and Joy Abedikichi.  An expression I use, and think about, is that it looks “Glassy.”  This means a sense of transparency, bright shimmer, wet fluid quality, an optical quality like a lens that changes as you move to look at it, a material that gathers light and at the same time reflects dark shadow.  Glass is an incredibly beautiful material.  The challenge aesthetically is to not let the glassyness overpower the aesthetic message.  When the two work in unison, aesthetic and the glassy quality then you getting somewhere worth going to. ~ Andy Young
