Judith Schaechter works in stained glass and creates works of such wonder they take my breath away. The colours and layout are reminiscent of intricate stained glass church windows, but Judith is an atheist, and has taken the techniques and run fast and furiously with them, veering from the traditional religious parables and images, whilst connecting them at the same time to construct her own unique parables. Some have me in mind of Hieronymus Bosch in technicolour. Here is a link to her website – Judith Schaechter – I recommend a look because I couldn’t list all of her works – it was hard enough narrowing them down to the huge amount I have chosen –  and they are all well worth a gander. I also encourage that you click on the pictures to embiggen them, so as to see the details in all their glory.
