Leaded glass made easy
The leaded-glass for these doors are simple to make and they really help to finish out the Stickley style for this piece.
The leaded-glass doors in Michael Pekovich’s Arts and Crafts display cabinet are not only true to the Stickley style, but they look great and are simple to make. Once you have mastered the techniques, you can easily apply them to more intricate designs. Pekovich takes you through the process of making a template, cutting the glass cleanly, assembling the glass panes between strips of lead called came, soldering the frame together, and adding the finishing touches. Also included are instructions for making a curved glass design.
