St. Petersburg, Florida: Savannah Webb carries her late father’s legacy as a talented stained glass artist with the family’s store, Webb’s Glass Shop. She is tasked to judge glass making at an arts festival, and makes the right choice for the winner.
When winner never claims her reward, it is up to Savannah to look between the cracks and uncover who would go above to win the competition.
Stained glass making is one of the most ancient art forms in history. Started by the Phoenicians, stained glass making was shaped into windows, centerpieces, faux gemstones, even currency!
The model was simple: combine pieces of glass, solder them between sheets of copper, and create gorgeous, awe-inspiring masterpieces.
Famous works include The St. Vitus Chapel Windows in the Czech Republic; and the Lycurgus Cup, a fourth century Roman cage cup with red and green splashes.
