In Memory of Tim Jerman
June 25th, 1957 - June 6th, 2004

Tim Jerman at work The entire arts community suffered a loss with the passing of renowned independent glass artist Tim Jerman.

Tim used the "flameworking technique" to create his glass sculpture. As a junior in high school, he was allowed to enter the glass program at Kent State University under the glass master Henry Halem. In 1978 he moved to Hocking Hills, Ohio, to open a glass studio with Nick Delmatto.

In 1981 Tim suffered a spinal cord injury in an auto accident but still continued to create magnificent glass art thereafter.

His work has been published in Contemporary Lampworking, Volumes 1 & 2 and Contemporary Lampworking, 2nd edition by Bandu Scott Durham; and in Flameworking by Elizabeth Ryland Mears.

In April 1999, Tim demonstrated at the International Glass Arts Society in Tampa, Florida. He has two sculptures displayed in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Renwick Gallery of the National Museum of American Art, and has a piece in the permanent collection of the Ohio Craft Museum.
