Stained Glass Windows
Gloria Dei is also fortunate to series of stained-glass windows that are a unique demonstration of the finest artistry in this field of the ecclesiastical arts. Designed by Mr. Robert Berg of the St. James’ Kiln and completed Miss Elizabeth Scott of Minneapolis. The process itself is an old-world technique, rarely, if ever, used in this manner in this country. The glass is an imported “fleche” glass which comes in double color, and a painstaking etching process is used which insures the deep richness of the reds and blues.
