Restoration after great fire in
Windsor Castle, 1997
Windsor Castle restoration was my first ever commission, it took me from serving Mexican food to the professional life of working on stained glass. I ended up doing 14 heraldic windows in St. George’s Hall, 60 heraldic shields in the Stuart Room, and various other works in the Octagon Room, the North Window and the North Corridor. In all I spent 14 months on the project and at the end of the works the royal family threw a drinks party in St. Georges hall. The Queen, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Edward, and Prince Philip all spent 3 hours at the party and we had a jolly good time. It was the first time I met the Queen, and I was completely tongue-tied.
