Dalle de verre

Dalle de verre, which is French for glass slab, is a glass art technique that uses pieces of colored glass in a matrix of concrete and epoxy resin.  The technique was developed by Jean Gaudin in Paris in the 1930s and has been applied worldwide, including these Windows of Heaven at Saint Agnes Catholic Church in Sawyer, Michigan that were created by Joan Hector and Toni Smith to express the Christian story.

Windows on the west side of the church depict themes from the Old  Testament.
