2011 SGAA Design Competition Awards
Aug 1, 2011
Conrad Schmitt Studios is proud to have received two awards at the SGAA (Stained Glass Association of America) 2011 Design Competition. This annual competition features designs from stained glass studios throughout the country, and CSS was pleased to receive both Third Place in the Creation theme and Best of Show for the same submitted design.
Our representation of creation pictures God the Father wearing robes of royal purple in the center of the universe, with the results of the six days of creation radiating from Him and filling the void represented by the darkness along the inside of the border. The six days of creation begin in the upper left and continue clockwise, separated by bursts of red light representing dawn and dusk. The final day of rest is represented by the yellow flowers in the border, the Traveler's Joy, a symbol of rest.
