stained glass restoration fabrication and design
Weight of the glass plus a weak design element in the lower section of the window caused it to buckle and the panel above it to slip. In the 1960’s these sections were removed for repair and at that time many lead flanges were added and broken glass was replaced with poor repairs.
The entire 20’ window was removed for complete restoration. Failed leads were replaced with leads matching the originals although a total relead was determined not necessary. Poor repair glass selections were replaced with superior matches resulting in the elimination of visual holes and distractions.
