1991
Two-light window with an abstract design, mainly in blues and browns, the blue glass suggestive of flowing water.

technique: stained glass

artist: Gareth Morgan

Church of St John, Pontyberem, Carmarthenshire
south wall of the nave

Signed 'Sareffta 1991'.

The window is made using a variety of techniques including plating layers of glass, acid polishing and sandblasting blue flash glass.


The window is the artists creative response to verses 7 and 8 of Psalm 42. The right-hand light represents a mountain torrent flowing down to the rock face, while the water flowing to the left and out of the window is suggestive of the growing spiritual awareness of the psalmist.
