stained glass restoration fabrication and design
Over the years significant amounts of dirt collected between the plates darkening the entire window. Tie wires failed and panels were released from their support bars.
The window was removed to the Studio for restoration. Plates were removed, collected dirt vacuumed out, glass cleaned and broken glass repaired with Hxtal NYL-1. New perimeter leads matching the original profiles replaced failing leads.
The failing original window frame was reproduced is steel faced with wood by Studio del Arte of Brooklyn, NY. This allowed for a secure installation to hold the weight of these heavy panels. A new lighting system was designed and installed to replace outdated and burned out florescent light bulbs.
