Glass Altar began with the wood framed piece of glass panes, separated by lead, which were curiously an opaque white. I covered the front of the panes with some found paper, and mounted a fragment of a brass fireplace screen on the front and a Santo of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Catholics have a powerful form of portals with the saints and the Virgin Mary is one of the most powerful; think of all those appearances, all over the world.
