Dupont Chapel Stained Glass Window

In 2006, we were contacted by George "Frolic" Weymouth after he had been to several other studios in reference to making a Stained Glass Window for his families private Chapel. Mr. Weymouth is a renowned artist who I was fortunate to collaborate with on his project. The glass is all german mouth blown Lampert's glass. There are 3 seeds falling from the weeping sunflower to symbolize death and rebirth. In the picture you see me with Mr. Weymouth while he is painting the color on the cartoon. Another picture shows Mr. Weymouth signing the actual window with me. The picture of me holding up plywood was to determine the size that we felt would look best. The window is 5ft in diameter. This posed a challenge as Mr. Weymouth did not want to see reinforcement bars. I therefore used custom reinforced lead and on the inside I made custom rebar that was bent to mirror the lead lines and then welded together. On the outside I used brass fins that were continually soldered the length of the lead. The window was than put into a custom stainless steel frame which was than transported to the site and than the stone mason's built their stone around the window.
