New Stained Glass Projects
“A huge thank you for the most wonderful job creating the stained glass windows for Northminster! The planning and creative process was fascinating and our communication went very smoothly as the windows developed.
“It was amazing to see how you followed my original artwork and made it come alive! When we visited your studio and watched you cut the glass and assemble the windows it was a breathtaking experience! We were very excited, but it wasn’t till your team arrived to install the completed windows that we realized the magnificence of this project! Words can not express our gratitude for such a fine job. I’m enclosing a full disc copy along with some of the photos from our adventure together.”
Suzi, Window Designer, Northminster Presbyterian Church – Endwell, NY

Rev. Jeffrey O. Cerar, St. Mary’s Church – Fleeton, Reedville, VA

“As I read some of the early writings of the Lamb family on Sacred Art and also being a fan of their work in Stanford University Chapel, in Palo Also, I found that you have carried on in their philosophy of the visual aspects of a sanctuary speaking of God’s beauty and grace.
“I realize that the 677 square feet of window was a challenge. You and Roy have created a gorgeous and glorious stained glass window that will inspire and bless all those who experience it. Every time I see it, I am more grateful and I look forward to having that occur for a long time.

“ We have completed our second project with J&R Lamb Studios. On behalf of Morrow Church I want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to you and the craftsmen at Lamb for bringing our windows back to life.
“In our first project we entrusted you with the restoration of three Tiffany stained glass windows. They were transformed from dark, easily ignored windows back into their vibrant artwork for which Tiffany is so well known.
“In this second phase we had you change our protective coverings from discolored Lexan to clear laminated glass on four substantial transept and numerous regular size or smaller stained glass windows. Where appropriate you removed and flattened the windows and performed exterior maintenance and painting. We couldn’t be more pleased with the result.”
Mark E. Goodman, President, Board of Trustees, Morrow Memorial United Methodist Church, Maplewood, NJ

“I just wanted to drop a note of thanks for the amazing work that the J&R Lamb Studios provided to the Reformed Church of the Tarrytowns. For over twenty years the church has stored a valuable Tiffany stained glass window in its basement. By the time we opened the crates after those many years we had no idea what to expect…the condition of the glass, the possibility of restoration, the affordability.
“Your experts provided such helpful guidance that we were immediately encouraged. Our project began, and when that window was unveiled in its new home, the response from the gathered was audible…it is simply perfect.”
The Rev. Jeffrey Gargano, Pastor, The Reformed Church of the Tarrytowns, Tarrytown, NY
“We had to write to tell just how pleased we are with the windows completed thus far. They look magnificent! And also to let you know how professional your crafstmen are. They were so patient with the questions from some of “the guys” and also so very careful of the surroundings—cleaning up any mess—and probably leaving their work area cleaner than before they arrived!”
Evelyn Daniels, The Stained Glass Restoration Committee, Cap May United Methodist Church, Cape May, NJ

“Your staff was extremely friendly, professional and very experienced. I would highly recommend Lamb Studios…”
Richard Veffer, Managing Director, The Ritz Tower, New York, NY

“In 2006, we engaged J & R Lamb Studios for the restoration and renovation of two …stained glass windows. This work included cleaning, touch-up paint, rebrace and touch up interior finish, change mismatch glass, flatten and brace various bulges in these two windows and change the aged lead cames. We were fortunate to have Lamb Studios available as the two windows were in serious condition and needed immediate attention, if we were not to lose them in one of the next storms.
“What was most appreciated by the vestry and the congregation was Lamb Studios professional willingness to explain in great detail the work they were doing, how they would proceed and where they needed to be extra careful.
“It goes without saying that the members of the Church of the Epiphany are pleased with the work done to the windows and are amazed at how much brighter the windows and designs are, now that they are completely restored and cleaned.”
