A Tour of Rohlf's Stained and Leaded Glass Studio

Skylands, my home on Mt. Desert Island in Maine, is a massive granite structure that has many, many large and beautiful leaded glass windows.  Unfortunately, last October during Hurricane Sandy, one of those windows blew open, breaking two panes of glass.  There was a local artisan who used to fix my leaded glass issues from time to time, but I found out that she retired and I knew of no one else in that area to call upon.  So, I had the window removed from the house, crated up, and driven to my home in Bedford, New York because we found a place in nearby Mt. Vernon, where it could be fixed.  Rohlf's Stained and Leaded Glass Studio has been owned and operated by 3 generations of family members for more than  90 years.  It is one of the largest stained glass window firms of its kind and has completed many major window installations worldwide.  After touring their studio, I realized that my two broken panes would be absolutely no challenge for the highly skilled craftsmen who work at Rohlf's Studio.
