Scope of Project
- multilayered windows- each measuring 6.5' X 8'
Techniques UtilizedDisassembly of all leaded panels, cleaning of all glasses, edge gluing of damaged glasses, plate painting of fragile delaminating painted glasses, reassembly of panels and plates by releading and copperfoiling, refurbishing of all bracing materials.
These multilayered (plated) windows were extremely dark from debris accumulated between the plates. In addition, the painting on the glasses depicting flesh was very fragile and had delaminated in many areas. Cleaning was a very delicate process and plate painting had to be applied to a clear glass plate to restore the original appearance.
