Sherry Brewer said she feels as if “the Lord asked me” to design and craft a stained-glass version of “The Last Supper,” the famous Leonardo da Vinci’s 15th Century painting at her “I Love Stained Glass Shoppe” on the Boulevard.

“It has been a true work of inspiration to everyone who works here or comes into the shop,” said Brewer, who told the Forum a number of churches have shown interest in acquiring the large, handcrafted artwork when it is completed.

 

Local artists, including Doug Savich of San Leandro, have been working with the shop’s employees for the past year on the eight-by-three-foot stained-glass and copper window that will contain roughly three thousand individually cut and prepared pieces of colored glass.

 

“Customers who come in are beside themselves...some even break into tears because they are so moved by it,” added Brewer who plans to display the fully assembled work in her shop.

 

The “I Love Stained Glass Shoppe” is located at 3315 Castro Valley Boulevard.
