Szal Design Commission one of Trinity College's Best Kept Secrets!

One of Szal Design's art glass pieces has been featured by Bantam blogger Kathryn Van Sickle '12, as one of Trinity's best kept secrets! Read the blog post here.

Tim Szal '06 designed and built four art glass panels for the Chapel's rehearsal room during the spring semester of 2005. Working with the chaplain at the time, the Rev. Daniel R. Heischman, John Rose, College Organist and director of Chapel Music, and Patricia Tillman, Associate Professor of Fine Arts, Tim was able to create an Independent Study in the Studio Arts to receive credit for the project during his junior year at Trinity.

Using traditional leaded glass techniques and hand-made mouth-blown glass from Lamberts in Germany, Tim's piece "Out of the Depths" conjures images of rising up from darkness and into the light. This image is quite appropriate given the location of the windows at the base of the East end of the chapel, below the High Alter and rising up out of the hillside on Trinity's Lower Long Walk.
