Design of the Month · October 2015
"Kingdom of Heaven"
In 2013, I was commissioned by the St. Thomas Anglican Church in Johannesburg, South Africa to design and manufacture a triptych window set in dalle de verre. I have been waiting for an opportunity to put my trusty Glass Eye 2000 Enterprise Edition through its paces, designing and executing the project using my newly acquired waterjet cutter. I did the presentation, exploded and nested the glass for water jetting, designed and printed the internal reinforcing and printed the full-scale drawings on a plotter.

About the artist
Fanus has been doing stained glass and dalle de verre for the past 25 years. In his early years he shared a studio with his mother Hanna, but in 1999 established his own studio at its present location in Arcadia, Pretoria, South Africa. Currently operating with his team of three craftsmen, the studio designs and manufactures a full spectrum of liturgical and private architectural stained glass in southern Africa. He has a website and can be reached by email.
