Asian Theme for the Lunar New Year

Section of design, Shaugnessy entrance

Tying in nicely with the Chinese New Year, I’ve been working on a new design for a beautiful home here in Vancouver. The project is three entryway windows composed of elements which are important to the family; symbols of good fortune, honour and longevity in Chinese culture. The majority of the imagery is derived from nature; flowers, plants and creatures are imbued with a great deal of meaning.  Stained glass is predominately a western art form, but this is a wonderful opportunity to be inspired by Chinese artists and to create an East-West fusion!
