Throwback: Cubist Stained Glass

Glendale Matias from Oasis Church in Los Angeles, California brings us this Christmas design that’s perfect for Easter too. (Originally posted Mar 2013)

Their church just moved into a new (actually old and historical) building with stained glass. For Christmas they wanted to tie in the building to the overall design. One of those elements they choose was stained glass. They designed a pattern and used this pattern to brand the look on stage and in the lobby.

For the stage, they used 4×8 sheets of foamcore to cut the pattern then taped colored acetate on the back. Originally they had the foamcore hanging on stage from the truss above, but later reused hollow stage flats so they could stand independently on stage. In the lobby, they scaled the design to fit the front lobby windows and printed the design on window cling plastic. The lobby tree was made using a rough pyramid form that they covered with chicken-wire and hung 200+ christmas ornaments that they had in storage.

    The window cling idea fascinates me. How much did that cost? I’ve looked up pricing and it isn’t cheap. If it was under $1,000, what company did you use?

    Beautiful stained glass. Looks amazing.

    do you happen to still have the pattern?

    Do you have the pattern for the stain glass or have where you got them? They look great and am looking at replicating it here at our church for Easter.
