Globe Light Fixtures Restored (2011)

 A lighting fixture craftsman, Peter Jenko, from Lumenelle, was retained to undertake the restoration work of the "Sun" and "Moon" globe fixtures hanging above the organ loft. The fixtures were re-wired and the clasps and hanging supports were repaired. In addition, Mr. Jenko removed the accumulation of years of dirt and grime from each fixture and fitted the fixtures with new cloth lining. The restored globes were re-hung by an electrician and supplied with long-life LED light bulbs. Cleaning the globes revealed intricate bird and flower details, and striking butterfly clasps on the large sun globe. Based upon their patterns and details, Mr. Jenko theorized that the globes may be of Japanese origin. This project was a joint effort between Second Presbyterian Church and Friends.
