Victory Jaguar

This stained glass window was commissioned by Kye Yeung, owner of European Motor Car Works in Costa Mesa, California. The window depicts the final lap of the 1988 24 Hours of Le Mans, where the winning Jaguar XJR-9LM of Jan Lammers, Johnny Dumfries and Andy Wallace led the 4th place sister car of Daly/Perkins/Cogan and the 16th place car of Sullivan/Jones/Cobb to the checkered flag. As this was Jaguar’s first Le Mans victory since 1957, the scene also depicts the Le Mans–winning D-type chasing the XJR’s in the background.

Windows such as this start with a full-size drawing from which pieces of glass are laid over and individual pieces cut to size. The edges of each piece is then wrapped in cooper-foil tape, the so-called “Tiffany” method, and then joined together with silver solder. For special details, the artist will often hand-paint and fire certain pieces, as well.
