|Starting point - broken section|
Then they delivered it to Phoenix Studios, so they could start to work their magic. Unlike modern stained glass, which would allow you to replace just the broken piece, antique glass requires the window to be disassembled from the outside edge, to reach the broken piece. And once Jane got our piece in the studio, she realised that matching new glass to the 90 year old glass was going to be a challenge. She had to order a couple of different samples, to see what would work best.
Once the glass was repaired, the guys needed to - carefully - reinstall. They remounted it into the frame and then double glazed it, for energy efficiency. Then, Kyle and James carefully remounted it into the opening.
It still needs caulking and painting, but doesn't it look fantastic? What a beautiful accent to the living room!
