Recently I have restored some stained glass panels for another Brisbane’s leadlight studio, following a previous reparation I did for them for a panel in the church of Auchenflower-Milton. I was asked to recreate the paintings for two small panels from the Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Woollongabba, while they would have taken care of the re-leading of the panels and the installation in the church. The stained glass windows were damaged during the wild hailstorm that hit Brisbane in November 2014.
The two panels picture two kneeling angels holding a papyrus paper with a writing to commemorate the memory of Wellington and Amily Wilham, parents of the original window’s commissioners. The elaborated wings of the angels are turquoise, their dress is acid green and the faces are delicately painted.
The small panels were brought into Glass Artistry’s studio with damages to the face of the left angel and the wing of the right angel. Also the glass containing the dedication message was scattered into a number of small pieces, and other smaller border pieces with decorative leaves were also irreparably broken or missing. In total, there were about 30 glass pieces broken that required to be recreated.
