Ogden Ave. School Receives Window

Ogden Ave. School Receives Window

Ogden Ave. School Receives Window! Several months ago Suevel Studios was approached by parents of Ogden Ave. School in La Grange, IL. to see if there was a possibility that Suevel Studios could create a stained glass window that would not only represent the kids, but also tribute a child that had passed away during the past year.

After some consideration and careful planning Suevel Studios proposed that the kids make fused glass tiles that we would take and make a stained glass window. We did this with a wonderful woman from New Orleans, Patricia Muller, who had created fused tiles for Sandy Hook and turned the project into a large stained glass window, which was shown at the Washington National Cathedral.

After the tiles were made Suevel Studios spent time trying out several layouts. The main focus with the tiles was trying to place the tile of the child that had passed on in a prominent place of honor and what better place, but front and center.

Every tile was meticulously placed and soldered in position to create the pattern we chose. After weeks of discussion, glass cutting, fusing glass and building the window, Ogden Ave. School Receives the Window and now stands in a prominent place so everyone can enjoy the loveliness of the window every day.

Thank you Ogden Ave. School for the honor of making your tribute window!

Ogden Avenue School

One of the projects that is being designed right now is for Ogden Avenue School.  The fun thing with this window is that the kids made all these fused pieces that will be placed in the window. Today Markay, Denise and Joshua cleaned up the fused projects and are now inspecting them in the picture. There is one fused tile that is obviously different from all the others and that is for a child of the class that has passed away.  We would like to make sure it stands out from the rest not just in design, but placement.  From there we will assemble then into a window with a few additions. Once its completed we will install the window on the main floor of the school in a transom. Keep watching as things progress with the Ogden Avenue School project.
