Islamic Stained Glass Illuminations

Came across this site a few weeks ago, again out of the UK - Islamic Stained Glass Illuminations by Alan Baker. I've long thought that Islamic design would be well translated into stained glass. This shows that it's true. I would like to see the pieces themselves as I've seen some things like this that come off better in the photograph than in the panel itself.
Still, I like the effort.
One note on the website - lose the animated gifs!!! It's a really, really bad web design faux pas.
