Dulwich Village stained glass, December 2009

Great colours! This panel was fitted in an inner hall door - its quite large - around 750mm square - and had originally been made with particularly heavy lead - and installed with no supporting stucture of any kind. It had begun to collapse in the centre, and a couple of pieces of glass were lost. There were also some rather unsympathetic pieces of glass in the pattern, maybe from previous repairs. We removed the panel, stripped it down, cleaned the glass, cut new to replace the lost pieces and those the client decided to change. We reassembled with a lighter lead to reduce the weight, and fitted behind a panel of laminated safety glass for support with a retaining bar on the other side.
