The four abstract glass panels that flank the chapel entrance speak of collapse and rebirth and resemble both flame and flower - reminding us of the fires we witnessed, and evoking at the same time a beautiful blossom. The light plays off the etched glass on the back wall, creating the sense of a central nave and guiding the attention of the worshipping community to the altar. The windows remind visitors to go forth affirming the values of truth, beauty and goodness.
"Designing is not a rational process but more like a losing of self in the space and then following intuition. This is a wonderful thing about inspired religious art: the door to the mystery is merely opened by the artist. It is then left to the viewer to pass through for an experience uniquely their own."
