The project includes the restoration of two very large windows that are in the vestibule of the Chateau and two beautifully …
The beveled squares used in the entryway door and sidelights offer an elegant geometric design. The oval entryway windows feature lovely water and antique glass. Classic designs with a pink twist.
Pamela created a Victorian style stained glass for a client who designed a room specifically for this work.
This lovely Victorian stained glass window is well over one hundred years old. Pamela replaced the disintegrating lead and broken glass to restore it to its original beauty.
Prairie Window Restoration A large 100 year old window with three separated panels was brought to Pamela. The client asked if she could make one large window panel. Pamela disassembled the old stained glass window, cleaned the glass like new, releaded, puttied and added patina. The photos show the journey.
Pamela teamed up with interior designer, Rose DiNapoli, to design the stained glass windows for a 100 year old home in Washington, D.C. The actual motif for the Fleur de Lis came from the Basilica in Lourdes, France, where they visited while taking a break from restoring the stained glass …
The bevels, forming a circular floral motif, create a strong and beautiful focal for this Victorian style transom. The colors of muted orange and amber add beauty to the overall design, as does the use of two different textured clear glasses to emphasize the bevels.
The inspiration for this design came from perusing a stained glass catalogue printed during Victorian times. Pamela chose the lovely floral motif and expanded the design using repetion with connecting lines and ovals. Pale peach and green glasses contrast beautifully adjacent to the moss textured clear glass.

The diamond pattern is a classic pattern dating back to early English grand homes from the 16th century. It was more stable than square cut panes, hence used more often. The two panels were brought to Pamela, literally hanging by a thread. These are very old leaded glass panels feature …
I was commissioned to restore this historically significant stained glass from the late 1800’s. When I received the window, it was extremely damaged and broken. It never fails to take my breath away when I see the stained glass returned to its original glory.
The Irises came to Pamela’s studio with broken pieces and deteriorating copper foil. Pamela redesigned the border irises, keeping with the integrity of the overall design. She then added a double border. The cobalt blue creates a wonderful juxtaposition of color abutting the floral design. The outer border was inspired …
A leaded glass entryway, sidelights and transom, was created with a very classic design. Using a very pale gray glass for the center diamonds gives an added dimension to the overall presentation.
It was a joy to create “AQUA STAR” for a beautiful friend I met in Brazil. She is the mother of a little boy who is special needs. He sings to communicate and I honestly cannot think of a greater way to spread Love and Joy. Myles, may this Star …
When the Victorian transom was brought to Pamela, it was in a state of complete deterioration. The panel was over 100 years old and the lead was like tissue paper. The owner wanted it to be returned to its original glory and even enlarged by adding extra borders. Pamela began …
