I discovered Sarah Hall Studio‘s solar panel art glass, and found the meshing of color, light, glass and energy thrilling. Sarah Hall is a Canadian glass artist, and was commissioned by Holy Family Cathedral of Saskatoon to create stained glass windows that take advantage of the city’s average of 2381 hours of sunshine annually, more hours of sunshine than any other city in Canada. The Lux Gloria windows are embedded with more than 1000 solar panels.
I also discovered that a book I already own, The Color of Light: Commissioning Stained Glass for A Church, was written by Sarah Hall. I bought the book because liturgical and sacred art glass are realms I am drawn to with my own glass art, and Hall discusses important questions for churches to pose in the commissioning process and gives artists an understanding of the process as well.
