St. Edward’s Church: Custom Church Stained Glass

We’re humbled to announce that our newest custom church stained glass project is now complete. St. Edward’s Church located in Pennsylvania was looking for a custom memorial piece to pay tribute to their recently passed pastor. They also wanted to add a functional window for concealing the main street view from their observatory during service. The church interviewed many different studios across the country and decided to use our studio for this project.

The Custom Church Stained Glass Process for St. Edward’s Church

Due to the fact that this project began during the pandemic, we had to rely mainly on virtual communications for the design process when we typically do this in person. We created different versions of the tree of life design they requested and were going through the review process when Father Rick mentioned that he’d like to create a panel showing Jesus on the Sea of Galilee one day since this was his favorite Biblical teaching. We decided to give this design a shot as well – after presenting it, the Father and church both fell in love and chose this one for manufacturing. We wanted to add depth to the design and achieved this through painting and shading. We also wanted to create a bit of diversity among the other larger-than-life figures alongside Jesus and create calm waters as a symbol of the calm after the storm. Even with some of the installation challenges we faces, we were still able to design a continuous piece for the intended space.

The Rising Church Stained Glass Restoration

We’re pleased to announce the completion of our most recent church stained glass restoration project at The Rising Church. The Rising Church was built back in 1913 and is located in Arvada, CO. This community church is known for its homeless outreach and is beloved by those in the neighborhood. One night after the church had closed, someone walking by had thought they heard a commotion coming from inside. They decided to throw stones through the stained glass windows in order to stop the incident. Luckily, there wasn’t anyone inside but the windows were damaged all the same.

Our Church Stained Glass Restoration Project and Challenges

The church contacted us to examine their vandalized stained glass. Upon inspection, we found that 90% of the windows had been damaged. We transported these back to our studio to complete our proprietary restoration process. We soaked the windows in a soapy blend in order to remove all of the grime and dirt. This also allows for a quicker disassembly. From there, we replaced all the damaged glass pieces either from custom glass manufacturing or our existing inventory. The hand-painted glass was restored with an invisible mending process to keep the original intact. New lead was created for these windows as well. One of the challenges was that the windows were actually missing their original lead which was taken out so that they could fit the church. We resized the windows and shaved some of them down on-site to create a seamless fit. Exterior protection was also installed alongside exterior framing painting.
