Stained Glass Windows at River Road United Methodist Church in Richmond, VA
In 2009, Laws Stained Glass Studios installed (8) opalescent glass windows in the chapel at River Road United Methodist Church in Richmond, VA. The eight windows (size 32-1/2" wide x 65" high) each had a 12" round scene or symbol and a memorial plate at the bottom. Some of the windows had special, custom-made scenes like a hummingbird, a sunflower, a ship, and the older church building.
Laws began the installation by removing the existing wood sashes. The leaded opalescent glass windows were installed into the existing wood frame. On the outside, Laws placed 1/4" Lucite acrylic as the protective covering.
