I wanted to build a stained glass Celtic Cross for years and never was able to find a good pattern. Finally, after hours of internet research, I evolved the above design and built 2 different Celtic crosses in 2003. The other cross, Corinne and Kyle's Cross, is pictured below right.

"In Ireland, it is a popular legend that the Celtic Catholic cross was introduced into Ireland by Saint Patrick or possibly Saint Declan during the time he was converting the pagan Irish, though no examples survive from this early period. It has often been claimed that Patrick combined the symbol of Christianity with the sun cross, to give pagan followers an idea of the importance of the cross by linking it with the idea of the life giving properties of the sun. However this theory is now thought unlikely by most art historians, who think an origination from crosses carrying a victor's wreath around their intersection is more likely. Such a cross is found on the reverse of the Liudhard medalet from Canterbury in England in the 590's" (from Wikipedia)

Existing examples of Celtic crosses date back to at least the 7th century.

Celtic Cross is currently on display in the window of "In the Company of Angels" a unique Christian gift shop in Fairhope, Alabama. They build beautiful angels and Nativity scenes from the scrap stained glass I give them.
Angels from recycled glass!
