The first section below are photos of the completed restoration at St. Mary’s Church in Aspen.  Following these are the “before photos” of St. Mary’s.  This project included all 75 historic stained glass windows in this beautiful 1892 church.

Next are before and after photos of an original Art Nouveau lamp.  This client was so pleased with the restoration that she sent a lovely note, which is included at the bottom of the page.

Following this is a before and after restoration photo of a circa 1900 window in Aspen, CO.

The final photos are of historic restoration for all the glass in an 1890′s home in Aspen.

I think that you did a superior job in not only restoring my vintage lamp but also beautifully addressing all of the other little details where time had taken its toll. You are so professional and truly an extraordinary artist.  Thank you so very much for so masterfully restoring my French Art Nouveau lamp (turn of the century 1895–1912) and preserving the memories of my wonderful great grandmother who died just shy of her 100th birthday.  Incidentally, she gave me this lamp the last time I visited with her before she died and your excellent craftsmanship pays tribute to her. She, herself, was quite a good artist and would have so appreciated the sensitive and well executed restoration that you did.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
