Whether used to tell a story, or simply to add to the beauty of a home or business, stained glass is an artform artisans spend years learning and perfecting. Seen here, Elise Thomas, an artist at Attenhofer’s who apprenticed under owner Cynthia Courage, uses a premium metal called Colonial Zinc to craft one of two doors for a home in New Orleans’ Broadmoor neighborhood. Thomas uses a green sponge to periodically cool the tip of her 800-degree iron while she solders.
