This is a neat subscription!

This is a news letter with information and pictures of medevil stained glass. This month is a panel from Edinburgh.

Vidimus, the only on-line magazine devoted to medieval stained glass. Vidimus appears monthly and subscription is free.
We want to share our enthusiasm for this unique art by bringing readers news, and reporting on exhibitions, events, books and websites. Every month brings an exclusive feature article, and each edition also includes a detailed examination of a single panel of glass, our Panel of the Month. As a group, these panels will provide insights into all sorts of stained-glass issues, and will constitute an invaluable teaching and learning resource. We also aim to promote the work of the CVMA (GB), Great Britain’s national survey of medieval stained glass, and to introduce readers to the vast on-line Picture Archive, also accessible via its website. The CVMA (GB) website is full of information on the organization’s activities, as well as general and technical information on stained glass - and access is free.

Vidimus for a thirteen-light window of the Crucifixion and Resurrection. The inclusion of St William of York in the scene suggests that this pen and wash design may have made for Cardinal Wolsey, Tudor statesman and Archbishop of York (1514-30). The annotations have been attributed to the glazier James Nicholson and the vidimus dated to c.1525-26.

Found a cool pattern in the glass and a stencil.... added in a little "seaweed" and viola!


Came out cool eh? Still have to figure out how to burnish without breaking the shell.

An escape to abstract.

I went to the basement angry and 2 days later I had this to show off. Some of my friends say I should get angry more often....
