Detail: Window at Crow Creek Mine

Isn’t this window beautiful?

I spotted it at Crow Creek Mine while celebrating the marriage of a dear friend.

I’m not sure what to call this kind of window, since it isn’t stained glass, and if you removed the “stained” part, then it’s just glass, which doesn’t even begin to do justice (“Oh look, a glass window!”) to the overall specialness of the window .

I like the design – it just feels RIGHT: balanced, thoughtful, ornate (but not too overdone).  Even more, I like the semi-translucent shimmer surrounded by the weathered wood.  The juxtaposition makes the beauty of each even stronger.

I love Anchorage. I love what it is, what it's been, and what I dream it will be. I share my adventures with DJ (my husband), my fabulous family and friends, two frenchies named Grover and Teddy, and now, all of you. If you love Anchorage too, get in touch - guest posts are welcome!

  1. From the photo it appears to be stained glass. If it is actually all clear I guess you could call it leaded glass as it appears to have lead came between the pieces rather than copper foil.
