• Short Summary

    A modern way to make stained glass which makes it suitable for new concrete buildings.

  • Description

    Hayes, Middlesex.

    A story about the making of modern stained glass. Various shots of a man painting a stained glass window of angels. We see various ways of creating stained glass the old fashioned way, including cutting, stencilling and adding bits to the pattern.

    Then we see the new glass which comes in a slab and is an inch thick. Various shots of the slab of glass being cut and chipped by hand to give it a jewel like appearance. We see how it is toughened by covering it with sawdust and putting plasticine round the slabs to stop the concrete encroaching on them. Various shots of the windows in church.

    Cuts exist - see separate record.
