Restoration Continues for Sacred Heart Church

The Bovard team is working diligently to restore windows for Sacred Heart Church in Moline. The leading for these windows plays a dominant role in the design as can be seen, especially under reflected light.

Custom Water Theme Stained Glass

Anticipation grows for the completion of two custom stained glass rose windows for a church in Edisto Island, South Carolina. Water glass is being used to complement the water theme for the church. In addition to the jewel-like colors, light transmission through water glass creates a pattern similar to light shining through softly undulating waves.

Preliminary Documentation for Stained Glass Restoration

Teddy begins a rubbing to document the original stained glass panel for Sacred Heart Moline. When reassembled, the rubbing can show not just placement for each glass piece, but also the lead joints, providing information on proper construction.

Assembling a Custom Stained Glass Window

Painted stained glass pieces for Fron Lutheran’s custom stained glass window are being assembled. The flesh pieces will be given more layers of paint as they typically require. Each layer will add depth and realism to the glass artwork.
