Kansas Church Unveils World’s Biggest Stained Glass Window

Jesus

Tradition meets innovation by way of the world’s largest stained glass window.

The Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas will soon be unveiling a 100-foot by 40-foot window created via fused glass, a novel technique that the window’s designer Tim Carey described as “painting with glass” as opposed to the traditional method of painting on glass. The window, which depicts a series of Biblical stories surrounding a portrait of Jesus Christ, is the result of a collaboration between Judson Studios and artist Narcissus Quagliata. Quagalita, who pioneered the use of fused glass in large-scale installations, described the project as the “ideal showcase for the technique.”
