Glass Star - Jerry Hymel
It might not be snowing in Alabama, but you are going to want to bring this snowflake inside your home. The stunning glass work by Jerry Hymel is apparent in every aspect of this peice, no matter how you hold it or which angle you look at it from. A perfect gift for your one-of-a kind person. The snowflake measures 5"x5"x5".
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.
