Artist likes to add intrigue to beauty of stained glass

Garvin Sealy discovered his passion for creating stained glass quite accidentally.Studying barely a semester under a master craftsman at Eckerd College, he found himself yearning to learn more about the centuries-old art and its intricate use of color and light to bring glass to life.

In a few days the dream will come true, as Sealy, 26, leaves for Scotland to hone his craft at the Edinburgh College of Art and study the windows of great cathedrals in Britain and the European continent.He was inspired by his teacher, the late Fred Leuchs, to continue learning the craft, said Sealy, who plans to earn both master's and doctorate degrees in Scotland.The Eckerd College graduate wants to use his education to teach as well as create stained glass pieces.

"I want to give people the inspiration that I have received," he said.
