once this church held services,

now it holds a family of stained-glass artists who bend lead and light
and create glass worlds of wonder
the artists are named rick neumann and liza king.
if you have a few moments you might enjoy looking at some of their work

Stained glass is a romantic art that really requires some desperate skills. I checked the link and was amazed by the volume of their work.

They do nice work. Looks like they have a very nice studio.

I hope they are able to keep up the maintenance on the church. THey will be doing lots of painting, and I hate to think what will be needed when it is time to change the roof tiles on that steeple.

What a lovely old church and such a picturesque setting. Their work is stunning, the window for the medical center is amazing.

I often thought that I'd like to have a theme of churches. There are so many rural and country churches that are community treasures and so attractive. Love your snaps.

Love the angle you've taken it from... almost looks like a model... like a dollhouse.

The shots of the church are beautiful and the art is amazing! What an interesting place for a studio that makes stained glass.

I think artistry makes a good second home for a church.

I so like it when lovely buildings are preserved. The neumann's are very talented artists - modern and old-world methods of working.

At Rye, NY last summer, I came across the Rye Meeting House, which was obviously in dire need of restoration. That was sad to see.

Nice compo, I like the green colour, here where I live we dont have much green, beautyful church!!

The church is very nice but I was awed by the good work of these craftsmen: their stained glass is simply wonderful and I liked how they described the whole process on their website. Thanks for the link, again.

A beautiful view, Brattcat...so like I've pictured Vermont. I like the fact that the church has been put to good use. The artists to excellent work.

Re your comment on Ocala DP: It's probably the angle 'cause horses in Ocala have learned not to stick out their necks! :-)

'Tis a lovely church and I'm glad that it's being put to use rather than rot away (like some do here).
I love stained glass, I checked the website, pretty good stuff!

That's a fitting use for an old church.

Beautiful church just like I picture a New England Church. I am glad it is being put to good use. I always wanted to live in an old church. Now I am going to check out the link. Thanks. MB
