Stained Glass Dome

In 1990, I was in a partnership with Geraldine Powers. Geraldine would design and I would build.
We created this dome for the Jefferson-Pilot Building in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
This 12 foot-wide dome was built like a drop ceiling. A steel framework was created and the stained glass windows were inserted into the open spaces. We gently curved the window at the lead joints to fit the dome and reinforced the curvature with steel reinforcing bars.
