When we visited Paris in December 2010 we were mesmerized by the rose windows in the Notre Dame Cathedral. We stood admiring the colours, the shapes and how the light played through the ancient 13th century glass masterpieces. That year Paris experienced one of the coldest winters with accompanying snowstorms and temperatures reaching a shocking -10°C to -20°C. We have never experienced cold like that before. We could only stand to be outside a few hours before escaping indoors, searching for some warmth. We wanted to pay tribute to that amazing experience with this design. The colourful rose windows and refuge of the Cathedral contrasted with the bitter cold and white snow outside.
