Sometimes you get to work in extraordinary places.
Through a connection with the Cleveland Restoration Society, I was asked to do some leaded glass repair work in a grand home being renovated in Cleveland Heights.
Most of the work was repairing broken clear glass in leaded doors, and while that would not ordinarily be anything to write about, these were no ordinary doors. The leaded glass pattern repeated over and over to great effect. Curves and swirls made for time-consuming on-site repairs that might’ve discouraged a lesser craftsman.
Seeing the grand entranceway whole again was worth the effort.
