Dolphin & Manatee installation

Here are a series of photos of Eric in the process of preparing, and installing the Dolphin and Manatee stained glass windows above our clients’ Jacuzzi tub.  Here they are with the custom wood frames as constructed and painted by Eric.

On site, Eric adds the insulating tubing around the perimeter of the frame.  There is also insulating tape around the glass itself, as well as square wooden spacers between the glass and the window.

After carefully re-measuring the windows, Eric drills pilot holes for the screws.

And here he is, tightening the final screw.  Each screw was covered with a white cap, as shown, so that they blend into the frame.

Here I am with the windows.  Its SO satisfying to see the windows "living" in such a beautiful home with owners who truly enjoy them!  Thanks Ed and Julie, it was a pleasure!

And here's a "thank you" note from my client!
"Just a little note to tell you how much we love these works of art.  I had some time today, during a call, to really look through these in detail, as the sunlight came through.  The textures and angles of the light flowing through the glass is just magnificent!  Even the touch of making their eyes translucent blue just “pops” when the sun hits them just right!   Thanks again!"
