St. Stephen's, East Toledo

One of the best features, here, is the use of terra-cotta for decoration. The little plaques are distributed around the building, adding interest to an already interesting design. Here we can see Our Lord's Face, along with a cherub, and a ram's head.
The rose window is also surrounded by terra-cotta, in the form of a cross. The buff color contrasts perfectly with the mellow brown of the brick.
