UK STAINED GLASS NEWS (2017)

Church window found in Key Largo

Doing some pre-holiday Google research about Stained Glass in Florida, (where we just spent 2 delightful November weeks), I found a single but stunning image of a church in the small community of Key Largo (on the Keys) where we had a townhouse rented.

When I went to the Key Largo tourist office to ask where their superb resource was, the woman had no idea and tried to point me towards the local "craft shoppes" as she obviously had no idea of her community's treasure-trove. I asked where the largest church was, and was glumly pointed to a building about 300yards down Highway One.

This church (called St Justin Martyr at Key Largo, Florida) and the superb Charles Morse Museum in Winter Park,near Orlando (arguably the largest single collection of Tiffany windows in any one place anywhere)..were the SG highlights of a great and varied holiday.

Strange that the two best churches I've seen on my recent hols (remember the priest's one in Siena?) have both been in the rather rarer dalle-de-verre method...maybe it's the rarity and the difficulty of doing it (compared to leaded work) that makes it so outstanding. Pity the iconography is so mundane (I'm not religious, so only see it as artwork).
