Notes on Window:
John Piper's abstract design of discs and oblongs runs across the 3 main lights and 3 quatrefoils in the tracery above. That was a theme in some of his large windows. Piper wrote "The function (the flesh and blood and bones of stained glass , its whole being) is to qualify light and to intensify atmosphere in a room or a building, not necessarily to produce colour or a message".
