Hot off the press … a new silk scarf debuting this week exclusively in the gift shop at Trinity Church in the City of Boston. The inspiration for the design is a stained glass window, The Sower and the Reaper, by Cottier & Co. of London, 1878, located in Trinity’s south transept.

I’ve seen the window for years now, photographing both the sower and the reaper, but recently it was the light shining through the wheat in the reaper’s arms that made me pause and in pausing I could see the parts that made up the beautiful whole.

And then I was able to play with those parts. A wonderful exercise producing other designs I hope to share in the near future. Meanwhile, I hope you have a chance to see the scarf for yourself in the shop, and you can learn more about the window on one of the excellent guided tours.
