“Life of Christ” Medallions

Illustrating 24 scenes and parables from the life of Christ, our medallions are a wonderful way to add the message of Christ to a new window.  Using century-old techniques, these medallions are hand-painted and kiln-fired to provide a lasting image.  Once fired in the kiln, the paint becomes a permanent part of the glass. These medallions will not peel or fade.

Crafting a Medallion

Step 1

The artist adds black line work to the medallion to define the particular scene. The medallion is then film-fired at 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit to permanently set the paint to the glass.

Step 2

Shading is skillfully painted by hand to add visual depth and shadow to the medallion. The medallion is again kiln-fired to set the shading paint.

Step 3 

Color is added to the medallion suing a palette of glass paint. Each color is painted by hand. The medallion is kiln-fired for a third time to permanently set the color paints.

Step 4

The medallion is inspected for quality and then glazed into the new stained glass window.
