This article is an account of the work of restoring Owl back to good health. Although the task was initially daunting–and I put it off for a while favoring new creations—it turned out to be interesting. I was able to relive the experience of building one of my early windows, going back to an early stage in my career as a stained glass artist. I hope you will find this account good reading. One of the features that makes the Owl repair interesting is that many parts of the window are plated. In other words, they are made with more than one layer of glass. Plating is a technique that can be used to produce many interesting artistic effects in stained glass, but it comes with a price. If a plated window ever needs repair, the job will be difficult, time-consuming, therefore expensive.
