Ancient Arts Stained Glass owner Mark Schoem collaborated with our client Linda Gunn on the design of her window depicting a colorful, stylized version of the Angels Gate breakwater in San Pedro. When she was a child, Linda and her family loved the excitement of exploring Angels Gate.

Because of the large size of the opening, 58 1/2” x 57 1/2,” it was necessary and prudent to divide the stained glass into 3 sections using 1” steel T-Bar. Long time friend and expert stained glass installer Phillip Greer prepared the T-Bar and led the installation of the wood spacer, T-Bar and stained glass in the living room of Linda’s home in Long Beach.

The window uses many different types of glass: cathedral, antique and opalescent as well as beveled glass and glass jewels. Linda Gunn is an accomplished painter (, illustrator and children’s book author. The Angels Gate breakwater still inspires Linda and is a source for her wildlife paintings. It was a great pleasure to work together with Linda to make her vision a reality.
