I’ve been blessed to work with the best glass artists in the world guided by Barbara and Wilhelm Derix of Derix Glasstudios in Taununsstein, Germany. Standing in the midst of my angel windows are (from left to right) Karl Heinz-Traut, Art Director and Project Manager; Olaf Hanweg, Master Glass Painter; and Rahmi Schulz, Glass Artist Extraordinaire. This is a place that will renew your spirit. The artist William Cochran put it well when he penned a prayer in the guest book at Derix for the glassworkers, “Guard well the souls who serve this place tonight.” Indeed. Amen.
