I’ve been quite pleased with my own tote bag. While there are several options when ordering through the site, I tend toward the Basic Style with Black Cotton Strap. This one, featuring details from a Margaret Redmond stained glass window, will soon be available at the shop at Trinity Church in the City of Boston.

Also available online are several new pencil cases or pouches. I use mine as a wallet-like carryall. See a growing collection of pouches at http://bit.ly/2EQ3PjR

silk chiffon scarf and pouch

In the post light shining through, I pondered what to do with a photo of sunlight shining brightly through the dramatic decorative glass on the doors leading into the sanctuary at Trinity Church. Well, with the aid of a noreaster that left me housebound, inspiration did strike. I hope people like the results. These two items, and other merchandise featuring this original design, can be found at the shop at Trinity Church starting next week.

DSCN9897

new cuff bracelet available at the shop at Trinity Church

The it I’m referring to is my creative process.  I was (and still am) one of those children who’d get caught staring off into the distance most often through a window. When asked what I was looking at or for, I could never really say. It wasn’t so much that I was seeking as waiting. At some point, not always, but sometimes, something would crystallize and I would see what I had not before. And its those little finds that I try to highlight in my photography or expand upon in my writing. The same sensibility holds true in the design work I now do.

Stairwell

For years I’ve had the pleasure of walking past this window at Trinity Church, staring through clear panes, admiring how the light shines through the decorative glass and temporarily paints the floor inside. When surrounded by so many other rich architectural details as one is at Trinity Church, I began to take this lovely but comparably simple window for granted.DSCN7868

But one day I took respite by the window. I leaned against the staircase and simply stared outside.  Then, I don’t really know why except perhaps because the light dramatically changed in some way, I began to look at the window itself, as a whole composed of an assortment of geometric parts and that’s when I saw it. Or it found me. A pattern to play with or in this case to recreate using GIMP.

The “new” pattern that evolved can so far be found on a cuff bracelet, pencil pouch and pen, all available exclusively at the shop at Trinity Church. https://www.facebook.com/TrinityBostonShop/
