Local artist refurbishing 50+ y.o. stained glass window created by great-grandfather

Posted: Updated:

A more than 50-year-old stained glass window from a Columbus church will be refurbished by the original artist's great-grandson.

Crews spent Thursday morning at Sherwood United Methodist Church removing the window. 

The original work was done by Joseph Victor Llorens Sr. in 1958. Now, his great-grandson Charles Hardeman will restore the piece and move it to a new location after Sherwood and Edgewood United Methodist Church decided to combine to become Living Grace Church.

"We'll be re-leading it to put it back together again," said Charles Hardeman who works at Hardeman Fine Art Glass, Inc. "So, the glass will be old and historic, but we will be doing repairs and restructuring it with new lead."

Hardeman said it's always exciting to work on pieces by his great-grandfather and said this isn't the first time – he has worked on pieces from all across the country.
