Sacred Salvage: stained glass windows

Lance Waggener who oversees sales at Statesville Stained Glass walks Connie Book through the process of refurbishing stained glass. Statesville Stained Glass is refurbishing the windows the parish purchased from a church being closed.

In this video clip, Lance explains how workers make an etching of the window, disassemble it and then rebuild the supports.

There are 21 of these century-old windows that will be installed in our new church. They were crafted in Bavaria by Oidtmann & Company, the oldest continuous manufacturer or stained glass in Germany.

Connie also wrote an article about her visit to Statesville Stained Glass in our parish's Echoes newsletter.
