Glassmasters Stained Glass Window Suncatcher Washington National Cathedral
Gorgeous reproduction of the left top portion of the "Lewis and Clark" stained glass windows in the Washington National Cathedral. This scene depicts the Great Falls of the Missouri River. This beautiful piece has such vibrant colors and is sure to brighten anyone's day! This would make a great gift for anyone who has visited the cathedral, and this piece is no longer made or available anywhere! One of two of the "Lewis and Clark" stained glass clerestory windows in the south nave of the Washington National Cathedral. "Clerestory" windows are high above the floor, and usually quite narrow. This window -- whose formal title is "Odyssey of the Spirit II" -- was designed by Anthony Mako and E. Crosby Willet, and fabricated in Willet's studio in 1973.
Originally, the cathedral building committee required that all stained glass in the cathedral be the modestly colored English-style stained glass. Lawrence Saint designed most of the stained glass windows for the chancel, choir, and side chapels. But in the 1950s, financial patron James Sheldon convinced the building committee to abandon that plan in favor of the more vibrant, light-filled style of the French andish cathedrals. This is why the Washington National Cathedral has such vibrant, glowing windows instead of gloomy pastels that let in almost no light.
