Window of the Week: Hylas and the Nymphs

Commissioned in 2001 by a local client, Hylas and the Nymphs is inspired by the 1896 painting by John William Waterhouse. The painterly color effects of shadow and light in this highly detailed window were achieved by using two and three layers of glass. The figures were hand painted by Bill Campbell using powdered minerals which were then kiln fired onto the surface of the glass. This 3′ x 5′ window is one of the most complex windows we have created at our studio.
