Gregg Mesmer cleans a 16-by-34-inch stained glass window Tuesday afternoon at Mesolini Glass Studio.
The interior window was commissioned by a Bainbridge family and features fused glass elements set with lead inside a zinc frame.
The project has been months in the making.
“It’s one of my favorites already,” said Diane Bonciolini of Mesolini Glass Studio. “I just love the muted colors; a whimsical design but classic, as well.”
The window design was the result of five or so meetings with the clients to determine what would look best.
“It took a while to come up with this design,” Bonciolini said. “It was worth the wait for this one.”
Mesmer will find himself outside of the studio in the coming days; he’s teaching a five-session class at BARN (Bainbridge Artisan Resource Network) starting this week that’s called “A-Z of Stained Glass” (info at http://bainbridgebarn.org/calendar/).
The glass studio is open daily (but call ahead) and can be reached at 206-842-7133 or email@example.com.
