Stained Glass Restoration

This post details a recent Stained-Glass Restoration.
A mixture of wear and tear and impact damage meant entire window needed to be re-leaded.
The first picture shows the damaged 'blown' window held together with sticky tape

Process involved removing all the lead and cleaning
and or replacing original glass . I endeavour to save
as much of the original as possible
