Stunning image printed on glass of “Madonna and Child” by Giovan Battista Salvi, “Il Sassoferrato”.

Two types of digital ceramic printed glass designs were incorporated into the design of the church. The first, serving as external decorative glazing, is a photorealistic image of ‘Madonna and Child’. The second was a vector pattern printed on the curtain wall. Digital ceramic glass printing offered the architect a cost-effective and long-term durable solution for creating a signature look, which turned the building into a catalyst for discussion and admiration.

"The image of the Madonna and Child is all-embracing as we enter the front door of Stella Maris Catholic Church. This age-old image draws us like the Child to His mother. The curtain walls bring light and shade to the sanitary. The two columns of glass are a symbol of water. Water is symbolic of our Christian faith."
– Sonya Slater, Stella Maris Catholic Church
"The original concept was achieved and that was the building was to be a building within the park and the park within the building. We were able to produce large pieces of glass which had high resolution that has longevity and is easy to maintain." – Lee & Sandra Dunne, Architect
