The project consisted of the restoration of ten stained glass windows, six feet by fifteen feet each, for the Lutheran Church of the Reformation in Washington, DC. Originally designed in 1932 by Oliver Smith, the windows feature the life and teachings of Christ. All ten windows were fully restored, which included the removal and documentation of existing conditions, cleaning the glass, appropriate conservation measures and the releading of 150 sections of stained glass. The work was completed in three phases, spanning eighteen months, with the last windows reinstalled in March, 2009.
“Shalan Stained Glass restored our ten oversize painted and stained glass 1930’s era windows beautifully. They were true conservation professionals, courteous, on time and on budget. The documentation was thorough: the work was top-notch. I would absolutely recommend them to a church or fine art collection for their work.”
