It was a very pretty church.
That technique is called slab glass, faceted glass, or dalle de vere (flagstones of glass). The glass is one thick and cast in an epoxy resin. The facets are made by chipping the edges of each piece of glass with a hammer. It is best to not touch these windows because those facets can be sharp. The technique is very bold and graphic in design usually more contemporary. The black spaces (the negaive areas) are used to draw your eyes around the space. I have posted many photos of faceted glass on Flickr.
