Rev. William Ferry with Indians
This is the left window of the series which depicts Shusco, an Indian conjurer who was converted to Christianity by the Reverend Ferry. The opalescent stained glass is an American technique in which designers mix multiple colors to produce a more opaque effect. Panes of glass are then layered into the design to add to the color’s depth. J & R Lamb Studios of New York, operational since 1857, are the oldest continuously operating stained glass studio in the US.
