Artist: William Freer
Title: Rose Window in Rust & Red
Medium: NULL
Dimensions: 12"h x 14"w

There are few architectural details as well known or steeped with the historical significance of rose windows, found in Gothic cathedrals and many synagogues throughout the world. The windows are divided into segments by stone mullions and tracery, usually in a highly complex design. The windows invite us to look through the darkness into the light. Modeled after those windows, my ROSE WINDOW sculptures bring a hint of grace into your home. ROSE WINDOW in Rust & Red is 5 layers of rusted & coated steel plus one layer of rich red art glass. The sculpture pivots to gather natural or artificial light, and reveals a unique but related pattern of glass and steel on the reverse side, highlighting the key pattern in steel, offset with more red.
