Stained & Leaded Glass Notes

Frenchboro Church Window Restoration

This is one of the most ubiquitous designs in all of stained glass, yet the effect is beautiful in it's simplicity. In this project, the windows were seriously bowed due to lead fatique and what seemed to be too tight of a fit. I trimmed some of the glass to provide adequate space around it in the sash.

Hopefully I can get a photo of these once they are installed.


I started working with glass in 1984, under the mentorship of the owners of Asylum Glass Studio, in Newport (ME) I did production work at first, cutting, and assembling floral overlays for mirrors and lampshade pieces. I also designed commissioned windows, and all three of us designed and made window panels that we took to regional craft shows and on winter tours to the shows in Florida.

In 1983 we created the first public art window for Solon Elementary School, Solon, ME. I was fortunate to be awarded seven more Percent for Art projects from 1984 thru 1990. During this time I also did many repair jobs and some private commissions.
