St. Anthony’s Catholic Church

Oakley, California
Prior to restoration, St. Anthony’s glass suffered from deteriorated lead, cracked glass, poor replacement glass, and slipshod repairs.

Helios Art Glass restored the church’s windows panel by panel. Each panel was completely dismantled. Its constituent pieces were carefully cleaned, laid-out, and labeled with additional instructions. A rubbing was taken of each panel to document lead sizes, cracked or missing glass, prior “in situ” repairs, panel dimensions, etc. Then each panel was reassembled with high-density lead came, soldered, and weather-proofed.
