Re-purposing Art Glass

Perhaps you have art glass that doesn’t need repair or restoration, but needs modification to re-purpose it for another application.  For example, you want to modify some antique stained glass windows you bought at an auction to use in your new cabinet doors.  We can enlarge a panel, decrease the size, separate a large panel into smaller ones, combine smaller panels into a larger one, and so on, all of which is done in-house in our Menlo Park studio.  It’s fun to explore the possibilities!

Pricing is a unique to each job and is based on the degree modification, number of pieces of glass involved, type of glass, and the size, shape, and location of the glass in the art piece.  Clients tell us we’re the best value based on our knowledge, expertise, and service.

Every once in a while, we get the chance to preserve the legacy of glass artists before us. On the left, is a 200 year old leaded glass panel that our client purchased on auction from a French monastery. It was structurally falling apart due to its framing of soft lead and its bad reinforcement. We deconstructed the panel, cleaned the glass, and rebuilt it with internal reinforcing lining the lead came and our typical, stronger zinc framing. Additionally, our client’s window was larger than the original, but they didn’t want to alter the design. We added glass above and below before installing into her home.
