I am fond of stained glass windows. That’s an understatement, I love stained glass. My favourite of all time is not here in Yorkshire, or even England, but in Germany. The Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church with stained glass by Gabriel Loire, in Berlin, it just left me feeling completely overawed. The photos I took were pre digital camera days, so I took copies of the postcards I bought for this post. The link has much better pictures.
And as such do not do justice to windows at all. Have you visited this church? If you ever go to Berlin, this church is a must I feel.
We visited about 18/19 years ago , I forget. Anyway at the time I was studying on a City and Guilds Creative Embroidery course. These fabulous windows became the inspiration for some of my samples.
Canvas work- and
crazy patchwork with machine embroidery.
Linking this wonderful window to Wild Daffodil’s photo challenge
