Artist-Painters, Looking for people with talent to learn restorative arts, will train.
David Wiskirchen, church artisan with Wiskirchen Studios, explained that to clean the stained glass, he had to take each window apart, polish the pieces then put the window back together. Wiskirchen and his employees completed the inside, and are now working on the outside placing hand-cut, protective glass so the light will shine through. "Now we are outside, putting storm windows up," said Wiskirchen. He said he is hoping to compete for the windows by the end of the week or early next week. Working on stained glass has been in Wiskirchen's family for several generations, and has personally worked on windows at 900 churches across 13 states.
We approach each restoration project with reverence for the original artist and subject and with an uncommon appreciation for his or her work as well as respect for its setting. We are pleased to quote on major or minor repairs to your stained glass treasures, including cleaning, total restoration and weather protection of both the art and its surrounding framework. And we fully understand that the needs and sensitivities of each church congregation may differ.
