Baptism Window for Kingsway Lambton United Church, Toronto
(Donated in memory o G.Carman Mainprize,
a prominent citizen of Etobicoke for many years)

 

 
   

This fully painted two light window was executed for ‘Robert McCausland Ltd.’ in 1995. The figures of Christ and John The Baptist are handpainted and kiln fired. The design is a stock pattern that dates back to the turn of the century. (Note : the feet under the water.) This type of painting requires at least two kiln firings, sometimes three. The face and hands of the figures are painted separately in a process that is so delicate it uses the technique of extracting paint with a needle. This is what give the ‘Flesh’ areas of the body their fine texture and photographic detail.
