Stained glass window for a family chapel. The text is "Spes Unica", meaning "the Cross is our unique hope", extract from a hymn in honour of the Cross. The coloured glass forms a kind of marquetry which is held between two sheets of clear glass, 90 cm x 45 cm. No lead is used.

Two tierred window 40 cm x 30 cm.
The text is "Sancte Ioseph, ora pro nobis", St Joseph, pray for us.
The turquoise I of Ioseph fills most of the background,
which is a marquetry of glass sandwiched between two sheets of clear glass.
The other letters (SANCTE and OSEPH) are painted on to the front sheet of glass
with enamel paint (cooked at 600°).
