One of many panels which were removed from the original cast iron ferramenta and restored in the studio.

Each damaged solder joint was cut on both sides to allow the panel to flatten.

Resoldered, restored and re-cemented, each panel was replaced in it's original position.

Two complete windows after restoration. Not every panel needed to be removed. Only two were completely re-leaded.

All panels in this window were flattened & re-soldered except one, which was re-leaded. Slight undulation & ageing appearance were retained.

"Good Samaritan" by Keir. Excellent condition, except for leaking back plate, wooden frame & no ventilation, causing algae build-up in interface. This window was restored in-situ.

Glenorchy Parish Church

Ten pieces of unpainted ruby glass were carefully removed. New ruby was cut and bound with lead to make air vents. Solder was deliberately made to stand proud of the lead.

Vents were placed onto front surface using black silicon, allowing a 5mm air gap. This system is fully reversible. Solder could not be used in-situ because of the wooden frame.
