The El Camino Cemetery and Mortuary in San Diego constructed a new room in 2012. Our project was to provide and install two new stained glass windows for that room.
An interesting aspect of this project was that our windows must be designed to fit into a store front type window system and that they must be insulated. When insulating stained glass windows we envelope the stained glass between two pieces of clear glass, creating a triple-glazed (paned) window.
We love a new creative challenge and this project was certainly that.
To build an 8ft x 8ft wall of leaded glass as one continuous piece using lead and zinc came, to create the look we desired, we wanted no seams or joints other than the lead and zinc around each piece of glass and there would be no additional framing to hold the glass in place.
