Stained Glass

Mississippi Arts + Entertainment Experience

For the Mississippi Arts and Entertainment Experience, Pearl River Glass Studio has created a stained glass window titled Father of Waters – a translation of “Mississippi” by the Algonkian-speaking Indians. In his design Young depicts southern icons with a nod to the aesthetic of Walter Anderson. Its eye-level placement gives museum visitors the unique opportunity to see the window’s quality, creativity, and imagination up close.

St. Paul Lutheran Church in Imperial, Missouri

How Pearl River Glass found its way to Missouri is just one example of how many of our projects happen. Eric Held, Elmer Held’s son, is a member of Christ Lutheran Church in Jackson, Mississippi. Elmer is a long time member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Imperial, Missouri. While visiting with his son and family, he admired the windows created by PRGS for Christ Lutheran Church here in Jackson. For some time St. Paul’s has wanted a stained glass window in the chancel behind the altar. After receiving an inquiry from St. Paul’s I traveled to Missouri to see St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and to meet with Reverend Charlie Schultz, their minister and to determine the scope of work for this project.READ MORE

The Nature of Stained Glass

Designing for stained glass windows is not as mysterious as it may seem at first glance.

The nature of stained glass is to render ideas symbolically. All of the design elements, color, line, light and shade, texture, are all at play in the design for a stained glass window. This is our grammar, our means of communication just as the words on this page are symbols for meaning.

In work for the Christian church we also have a thousand year history of the stained glass artists that have gone before and left for us lasting monuments to their ingenuity, intelligence and skill.READ MORE
