Fan Pull - Jerry Hymel
Jerry Hymel has turned something ordinary into an ornamental gorgeous work of art. Each fan pull has its own joyful personality through color, shape, and metal accent. These fan pulls are a really fun way to brighten up a room! Although each fan pull varies in size, they are approximately 3.5 - 4" long and 1.5 - 2.5" wide. The chains vary in lenght as well, but generally measure 3 -3.5".
Having been trained as a research scientist at the Medical University of South Carolina, Jerry Hymel joined the faculty at Hinds Community College, Raymond, Mississippi in 1972. However, in January 1979, Jerry’s life was thrown a curve when a tree he was cutting for a friend fell the wrong way and pinned him, severing his spinal cord. A devoted teacher, Jerry returned to teaching the following September. After several hospitalizations and various medical complications, it became apparent that a change in life-style was necessary. Following retirement in 1982, Jerry pursued a hobby in stained glass. The hobby expanded into a cottage industry that has increased in size and scope. Jerry’s work is wide and varied- from gift items to kaleidoscopes, from bathroom windows to church windows, from new creations to restorations. The Our Glass Studio run by Hymel stays busy and is never boring.
