Heraldry (and Heraldic Stained Glass) in the News!

Over on the website of radio station WNYC in New York City there's a nice article about Sunlites Stained Glass in Rockaway Park, New York, and the stained glass panel that the owner there recently did for the installation of Cardinal Timothy Dolan at St. Patrick's Cathedral in NYC.


As you can see, it's a beautiful piece of work.

The arms of the diocese (to dexter, or the left side as you are looking at it) are notable for their use of the windmill vanes which are the major element in the arms of New York City (http://www.ngw.nl/int/usa/newyork.htm).  The personal arms of the Cardinal are on the sinister side (to the right as you look at it) of the shield.

A greater discussion of both this panel and of stained glass work in general can be found on-line at: http://www.wnyc.org/blogs/wnyc-news-blog/2012/feb/22/niche-market-stained-glass/
