Stained Glass Production
Renovation at Alloa District Court
The privacy screen between the public access stairs and the District Court
administration office contains 3 small leaded glass panels, each about 9
inches (225mm) high and of different lengths. These had got into a sad
state over many years.
I ws asked to remove and reconstruct these panels recovering as much of
the original glass as possible and reinstall the panels into the screens.
Detailed drawings and photographs were taken as a record of the
existing panels. The panels were removed and dismantled, all useable
glass cleaned and additional glass sourced and matched.
The panels were reconstructed to the original pattern with new lead and
about 25% new glass. They were reinstalled into the screens to the
clients complete satisfaction.
I particularly enjoyed this job as it took a great deal of patience to
find a good match for each broken piece followed by a huge jigsaw puzzle
to get each piece back in its original position and to use some of the
broken pieces to replace smaller broken pieces.
