THE MIRACLE OF GLASS

 

Chagall was an artist  like Gaudi. Whatever material he used,
it was to the fullest of its potential.

Chagall stained glass windows in Nice, France was done in 1957.
The 5th and 6th day of Creation. Motifs of Paradise.
The great Tempter, bottom left, and above-on right the Tree of Knowledge.
Chagall wanted an auditorium in his museum, and that is where
the Seven Days of Creation are placed as its windows.
Wished my photos would reflect the mystery when standing
in front of these works.

One of the miracles of glass in my opinion is that it is made of sand. Yet it is transparent.
Another miracle is that it can give the appearance of changing of perspective (vantage point) – oh, how one get very acquainted with that, when taking up the art of drawing and painting!

This organic Garden shop is in Amador City. It may have been meant as a city when built after the gold rush, but the main street is where all the shops are. That is how big the city literally is:)

    The stained glass is beautiful…but I love the flowers and the countryside!

  3. jesh stg says:

    Thank you! One of the few museums in Europe where visitors are allowed to take photo shots from the paintings (of course I made use of that).

  4. ladyfi says:

    What lovely miracles!

  5. riitta k says:

    I didn’t know anything about Chagall’s stained glass works – the paintings are familiar to me of course. The white cherry is osom!

  6. …wow, that stain glass is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing, enjoy your week.

  7. Angie says:

    I loved your reflection that glass is made of sand, and yet it is transparent. We could all take a lesson from sand … And I so appreciate your artistic perspective – I am not artistic, and I find your point of view so refreshing – thank you!

  8. The glass is particularly fascinating.

  9. through that miracle we see a glimps of Paradise, don’t we…. one can long for it

  10. I never knew he had worked with glass until I saw his windows in Mainz! Lovely!

  11. jesh stg says:

    ONE DAY Melody, we’ll be there:):)

  12. Cathy S. says:

    I will look for that beautiful glass when I visit Nice, France in September. Thanks for the sharing your beautiful photo!

  13. Sand into glass and blossoms into fruit are amazing to me, too, Jesh. Both don’t seem possible, yet, they are. I’ve often wondered if deserts were once great cities made of glass. 🙂

    I had no idea that Chagall worked with stained glass – it’s beautiful 🙂

  15. I just love Chagall’s work!!

  16. The Art Institute of Chicago has Chagall windows that look similar. It’s quite something to see them up close!

  17. Love the flowers and the organic garden shop. My kind of store. 🙂

    Wonderful post! Here’s another miracle of glass: It’s a liquid, not a solid! I was told this by a chemistry professor during class. As he could see all the disbelief on student’s faces, he said if you can find very old glass (such as window pane glass in a really old building), you will see it is thicker at the bottom, because glass “flows” extremely slowly over time. I’ve actually seen old glass that’s thicker at the bottom, so I guess I believe him!

  19. jesh stg says:

    Yes, I would think you would like that store:)

  20. Jim says:

    Great shots.

  21. A lovely collection of photos, each a miracle in their own way. The images of the flowers and the green landscape covered with yellow flowers are my favorites.

  22. Jesh – I see that we both live in Northern California. I’m in the SF Bay Area.

    I don’t know much about his works with glass so I looked it up. He did that when he was 72!!! My goodness, an awesome work. Thanks for sharing this.

  27. great reflection shot and I love the stain glass window and the beautiful blossom. I hope you have a wonderful weekend

  28. Beautiful…we see the same here this time of year.

    I like to draw in my journal, but I always have trouble with perspective. – Margy

  30. Cathy says:

    Such a beautiful stained glass window. Hope you have a great weekend.

  31. sensetheplace says:

    It should be somewhere at the bottom 🙂 , I think.

  32. Kay Davies says:

    Your Sky Watch photo is perfect, and your other photos are fascinating. I always forget that glass is made from sand, and then transfigured by an artist into magnificent windows as well as everyday items. I enjoyed this post very much.

  33. I love the variety in your posts, Jesh. Glass is truly amazing, when coloured it’s so beautiful.

  34. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Jean. When the weather is like on your photos, it’s harder to think of spring, even though that date has passed!
