Abundant Light – the Stained Glass Windows of Bruce Porter

I’m happy to have contributed some photos to the article “Abundant Light – the Stained Glass Windows of Bruce Porter” by Oakland leaded-glass artist Ted Ellison in the Fall edition of “American Bungalow” magazine. Ted has written a very nice article on a then-influential and now almost forgotten member of the Bay Area Fin de Siecle cultural scene.

The newly-restored Dove Window by Bruce Porter, and ocular window in the San Francisco Swedenborgian Church. The photo was taken as the east-facing window was illuminated by early morning light.

Porter's St. Christopher window in the San Francisco Swedenborgian Church may be the artist's most creative work. The composition shows a complete break with traditional stained glass window design.
