- The Stained Glass Windows
The images below are St. Lambert's stained glass windows by the artist Gabriel Loire of Chartres.
Loire (1904 – Dec 25, 1996) was a Frenchstained glass artist of the twentieth century whose extensive works, portraying various persons or historical scenes, appear in many venues around the world. He founded the Loire Studio in Chartres, France which continues to produce stained glass windows.
Loire was a leader in the modern use of "slab glass" (French: dalle de verre), which is much thicker and stronger than the stained glass technique of the Middle Ages. The figures in his windows are mostly Impressionistic in style.
