Leaded Door Panels with Custom Filigrees

Castle Studio recently completed a project for a home in Philadelphia that is undergoing a major restoration.  We’ve both designed custom windows and restored several antique windows for this homeowner over the last several years.  For this particular project Castle designed the door panels for the front entrance way that matched the aesthetic of the home.  To make the doors even more unique and beautiful, the designer, Randy, developed custom filigrees for the door- creating a custom mold and using molten lead, hand-casting each filigree with care.  The outcome was spectacular.
