This is a stained glass piece I purchased several years ago in Spokane. I know the artist and he knew of my interest in the space program. The faceplate is a mirrored so you can see yourself in the helmet.

It is an unusual piece. I spoke with the artist recently and he is wishing he had not sold the piece.
The dimensions are 24" x 24".

Interesting, unusual and pretty unique... I can certainly understand why he regrets having parted with it.

That is a beautiful piece. I'd like to buy one if the artist ever decided to create another. What are the dimensions?

Nice piece of artwork. Other than the stained glass with a piece of moonrock in the National Cathedral, what would be some other similar space art in public/private spaces in the US?

Since 2006, the Kansas Cosmosphere has displayed a large stained glass tribute to America's fallen astronauts.

Both pieces (Gemini 4 spacewalk and fallen astronauts' tribute) are stunning!
