Pineapple Stained Glass

The pineapple has been a universal symbol of hospitality and welcome for many centuries throughout the world.

This pineapple stained glass panel was commissioned by an officer's wife. She and her family are based at Fort Campbell, Kentucky which is the home of the 101st Airborne Division of the U.S. Army.

An officer's family has a very high level of duty and responsibility to uphold as they set the example for enlisted personnel and their families.

The woman who requested this piece couldn't think of a nicer way to welcome others into her home than to have a pineapple displayed in her front room window.

The panel pictured above is nearly half-way completed and should be finished and on its way soon.
