The stained glass panels are installed with chain, trim or moulding, based on client's preferred aesthetic.  Stylized chain was used for this installation to maintain the clean lines of the artwork.

Using the full scale design as a guide, glass and lead are cut to size and pieced together starting in one corner of the panel and moving outward.  Multiple cutting styles are used, as some cuts are free form and others are uniform.  A grinder is used to smooth edges of free form cuts so that the fit of the glass into the lead is perfect.
