Stained Glass Window at Fairlawn Presbyterian Church in Fairlawn, VA

     In 2012, Laws Stained Glass Studios installed a large cathedral glass window at Fairlawn Presbyterian Church in Fairlawn, VA.  The large window (size 76" wide x 222" high with a pointed top) has a red cross with a sunburst design.  
     Laws began the installation by removing the existing glass and the big, heavy steel frame.  After it was removed, Laws installed a new dark bronze aluminum frame from the brick to the brick.  On the interior of the frame, the leaded, cathedral glass was set.  On the exterior, Laws installed a 1" clear annealed, insulated glass unit as the protective covering.
     In addition to the new window, Laws Stained Glass Studios also repaired some opalescent and hand-stained glass windows in the chapel.  The repair consisted of replacing some broken glass, straightening two bulges, and adding some steel braces.
