Whether multi-petaled with intricate tracery or formed as a simple oculus, round stained-glass installations have been known since medieval times as rose windows.

Rose windows echo the shape of the earth, the moon, the universe and the eye with its ring of peripheral vision. Round windows are exuberant, eternal and anti-gravitational.

In this collection, rose windows infuse a spiritual quality into a range of liturgical, residential and civic settings.
