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.
Part 3 of the San Francisco Columbarium Series - New Stained Glass Windows
In 2012, a new Columbarium building was constructed along side the existing Columbarium from 1898, located at 1 Loraine Ct in San Francisco. In addition to the creation of five new stained glass skylights, we created three new stained glass windows for this building.
Part 2 of the San Francisco Columbarium Series - New Skylights and Laylights in Stained Glass.
In 2012, three new Columbariums were constructed along side the existing Columbarium which was built in 1898 at 1 Loraine Ct in San Francisco. One of these is now open to the public. A part of our stained glass project was the creation of a large Skylight and four Lay-lights (skylights with artificial lighting) for that building.
The Hyland Studio recently completed a large project at the San Francisco
Columbarium. The project included the creation of new stained glass windows, new
stained glass skylights and lay-lights and the restoration of stained glass dating back
over 100 years old.
