In Rochester, a companion installation explores the making of a stained glass window through objects on loan from Pike Stained Glass Studios, Inc., a locally-owned family firm whose founder worked for Tiffany.

Visitors to the Taft this summer will have the unusual experience of viewing a series of brilliantly colorful eight-foot-tall angels in Louis Comfort Tiffany’s unmistakable iridescent stained glass. The angel windows, which exemplify many of his innovations, once ornamented the apse (altar end) of a church in Cincinnati.
Also on view—only at the Taft—will be some fine Cincinnati art-carved furniture created by Henry L. Fry and other decorative arts objects, all from the same church. These hand-carved interior furnishings, including the ornate altar, date from the second half of the 19th century, when Cincinnati had an international reputation as a center for the decorative arts. Together, the furniture and stained-glass windows that will be exhibited at the Taft comprised the interior décor for the Church of the New Jerusalem, completed in 1903 by leading Cincinnati architects Elzner and Anderson.
