broken bent beveled panel

Out door light with four broken curved beveled glass pieces .  The hard part is the metal  it got bent when the large piece of ice fell and hit the  light. First with a hammer and a piece of wood I repair the metal . On to the glass I made a mold and bent 1/4 inch glass to the pattern needed .Test fit each piece then hand beveled each glass panel.  Installed the new beveled bent glass panels and gave the light a bath.
