Our Lady of Loreto Catholic Church

Foxfield, Colorado

Completed: 2016

Description:

Beneath the Romanesque octagonal dome are twenty-six stained glass windows for Our Lady of Loreto Parish in Foxfield, Colorado. Designed by Scott Parsons and created in collaboration with Derix Glasstudios in Taunusstein, Germany. The glass panels were created using hand-blown glass fired with in two or more kiln firings to layer the colors of glass. Then, using acid-etching techniques, sandblasting and vitreous-fired enamels were applied and fired to create the voluminous depth one feels when looking into these windows.
Thematically three series of windows were developed with Msgr. Edward Buelt: The Mysteries of the Rosary, the Angelic Hierarchy, and the Celestial Jerusalem. The windows were installed in 2014 and 2016.
