Our Lady of Guadalupe Art Glass Panel by Jenny Rainey

Jenny Rainey

Jenny Rainey's Guadalupe Art Glass Panel is made in the Sydenstricker Art Glass tradition. When Jenny was first approached about painting Guadalupe for our gallery, she had never heard the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  As we talked about the project and Our Lady of Guadalupe I shared the story of Juan Diego with her and the miraculous way She appeared on Juan Diego's tilga. Jenny then set about her work and discovering Guadalupe. Jenny drew this image of Our Lady of Guadalupe from her own interpretation of the famous Mexican Icon. The love and softness in Her face is so warm, so wonderful.  I love the way Our Lady has spoken to Jenny in this image. Since "meeting" Guadalupe Jenny and I have ironic instances/coincidences where it seems She is calling us bring this piece to the World and to your home and altar. 

Once Jenny drew Our Lady, she cut stencils of Her that are used to lay the foundation for powder glass to be applied between two panels of clear glass. Then the glass panels are fired in a kiln and left to dry for up to 40 hours.  These beautiful panels can be custom ordered in a variety of colors to suit your home or colorways.  A fine wire allows for the 17 x 10 glass art panel to be safely hung.   A custom frame can be made as well, but we think She stands beautifully on her own. 

Jenny is an multimedia artist who has trained and apprenticed at Sydenstricker Glass. Since "meeting" Guadalupe Jenny and I seem to have ironic instances where it seems She is calling us bring this piece to the World and to your home.  :)   If you don't know the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe this video will tell you a little bit about Her and the Miracle of Her image.
