I designed these windows in 1966 while teaching junior high at St. Luke School in Erie, PA. Rather than illustrating each window with individual Bible scenes, I wanted one sweeping image to dominate all the glass on each wall, giving a feeling of unity to the entire church.
With the inspiration of my favorite mystic, John, author of one of the Gospels, I integrated his words with a brilliant palette of colors woven into unified designs.
Upon completing the work, I was immersed in gorgeous color when I walked into the church for the first time. I felt overwhelmed, humble, and deeply grateful for the opportunity to create an inspired, beautiful sacred space. Jacqueline Shuler
