This article is almost verbatim what was said (and shown) on CBS last Sunday morning. One thing I notice that's missing is the revelation that the "Tiffany girls" had to quit if they became pregnant and that Clara herself eventually quit to have a family. Some photos of Clara's notebooks were shown and she was given credit for designing quite a few lamps.

In truth, there wasn't quite as much about process as I'd have liked, but it was generally good publicity for our craft/art.

The book about the Tiffany Girls can be purchased from the New York Historical Society for $29.95 plus shipping.  Mine came to about $35 I think.  Female employees of many companies during this time frame had to leave if they married, which Clara did when she first married, and then returned after the death of her husband...and then left again some years later when she married again.  This was the norm back then.

VIDIMUS 8 IS ON LINE NOW!

You can now browse issue no. 8 of Vidimus: go to http://www.vidimus.org/ and click on Current Issue. 

The News page brings details of recent events and developments in Germany, Canada, Great Britain and Austria. There is a review of the Rheinische Glasmalerei: Meisterwerke der Renaissance exhibition in Cologne, and as a complement to the German exhibition, our Features page has extended coverage of the one panel that did not make it there, in the church of St Leonard, Marston Bigot, Somerset. Our Panel of the Month comes from the spectacular Great East Window of Gloucester Cathedral.

As always, don’t forget to browse through our past issues in the Archive. It is becoming an ever-richer resource!

There has been much discussion about what happens to the stained glass windows from all the church closings.  I found this article about the Archdiocese of Philadelphia's stained glass "rummage sale" to be interesting:
