|To quote Jacqui
Partain, her "Leaded Glass Works meshes closely with architects to enhance and complement
their concepts, as well as, to coordinate our designs with theirs from a
single entrance to an entire estate."

designer and installed into architect-designed carved stone quatrefoil
frames as features in the Great Room, Entry, Baths, and gable ends.
The massive double 4 ft. by 10 ft. mesquite doors also feature Partain's
glass designs, suggested schematically by our firm and executed by
Jacqui. Accent windows are lit from radio-controlled exterior and
interior sources for dramatic presentation.
