C341 Stained Glass Cathedrals
Issue Date: December 9, 2011
On December 9, 2011, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issues nine new stamps featuring beautiful stained glass windows from some of
the world's famous cathedrals. The earliest known description of the painstaking technique of creating stained-glass windows dates back to a 12th-century manual probably written by the monk
Theophilus. In this technique, a drawing of the window's design is first created to show how different color areas will be divided into discrete pieces of glass. Sheets of manufactured colored
glass are then cut to fit using a red hot iron. Design details are painted onto the glass with enamel, and a kiln is used to fuse the enamel to the glass. The glass pieces are then set
intogrooved strips of lead which join the various pieces together. Finally, the joints between the lead strips are soldered, and the entire panel is waterproofed with a putty compound applied
under the lead.
