Psalm 112:5

Window of one round headed light.

This window depicts a kneeling man looking upward. There is a group of four people, with hands in prayer, in his sightline with stars beyond. The church of St. Anne’s Corstophine is depicted in the upper section of the window.

‘A good man showeth favour he will guide his affairs with discretion.’ (Pslam 112:5 KJV)

Gordon Webster (1908-1987) was born in Glasgow, the son of Alf Webster, a renowned Stained Glass Artist and inheritor of Stephen Adam Studio. Alf Webster died in WWI when Gordon was 6 years. The Studio was kept running due to MCM Webster (Alf’s widow) and Douglas Hamilton, Alf Webster’s assistant. Gordon was trained by Douglas Hamilton and took control of the studio in the late 1920s. Alf’s designs were used to begin with, but by the mid 1930s, Gordon developed his own style which proved to be effective and successful.
