Restored bent glass light fixtures for Saenger Theater.

Pleasant View Glass Works of Fenton Michigan restored and reproduced a number of leaded bent glass light fixtures for the Saenger Theater in Pensacola, Florida, an historic Spanish Baroque style building. This work was done as part of a $15 million dollar overall restoration. Bending glass to match the existing is a technical achievement requiring a steel mold exactly matching the contours of the existing work. The glass is first cut to shape and then “slumped” over the mold in a kiln, at temperature.
