To Sustain a Legacy:
The Grace Cathedral Restoration
San Francisco's Grace Cathedral has embarked on an ambitious $3-million campaign to restore its stained glass, a rare 20th-century treasure. Almost 7,300 square feet of stained glass portray some 1,100 figures, and tell the stories that span across all of time. In April, artisans completed phase one of the restoration in order that Disney Studios could begin filming its new movie.
Sentinel to Spirit Figure:
Cast Glass Sculpture by Susan B. Gott
By means of sand casting, kiln casting and blowing glass, Gott investigates the human form and connections to Spirit. Through the study of symbols and philosophies, ideas are developed to create a new mythos, resulting in glass sculpture both articulate and raw.
