I was given an incredible opportunity to make a stained glass window for the Dearborn County Courthouse. Here I am pictured with the honorable Jim Humphrey and his wife Heidi. They wanted to make a contribution to the courthouse for all the good years they had there. The idea was for their addition to resemble the windows that had been donated by previous circuit court judges. See the full story here.
I am pleased to announce our newest connection - Grovewood Village fine art gallery in Asheville, North Carolina! Yesterday I got home from visiting this wonderful town after dropping 13 of my stained glass windows off to hang in the open windows of this gallery. I didn't get to spend as much time as I liked in Asheville, but I did get to meet the great people that are part of the team at Grovewood Village, and I can say I have a very good feeling about the future.
Next time I will give myself an extra day to enjoy the scenery a bit more. Hopefully I'll be bringing more windows down in the coming months.
Participating in SummerFair this year at Coney Island was an incredible experience. I got to mingle with an awesome group of artists in all type of mediums and show a small part of the world what we are made of. This was our first juried art show and I couldn't have asked for a better turnout.
We were lucky enough to place 2nd in the glass category and sell a handful of windows, as well as a bunch of different prints. I established several awesome connections and may get some commissions out of it also. Overall, the most important benefit was how much we learned about the process of participating in a real art show.
Last year I submitted an image of my window "Essence" to be featured in the Stained Glass Association of America's quarterly journal. This is the country's top authority on stained glass and a nationally published journal. I didn't hear anything and kind of forgot about it for a year - then back in February I got the call I was waiting for. They are featuring my window in the 2020/2021 winter edition! My patience paid off. It is such an honor to be in here! I just got it in the mail and will definitely be showing it off at SummerFair in 3 weeks.
Every Saturday morning at 9:00 on ESPN News 1530 AM runs a radio program by host James Ernest called “This Dream House”, a show all about the home. James was kind enough to ask me to be the main featured guest on the 1/9/2021 show, discussing stained glass and how to display it properly in a home. In return, I showed him what Hinnenkamp Glass Crafters is all about and made him a window using the logo of his radio show. It is currently hanging in Appliance Factory & Mattress Kingdom in Beechmont, a sponsor of the show. Listen to the interview here.
"Jacob was awesome to work with. I had an idea of what I wanted and I let him do the rest. I was very flexible with letting him design the window and he blew me away with the finished product. It turned out better than I could have ever imagined. He provided me with a one of a kind masterpiece that I will be able to enjoy for many years to come. Charley Harper himself would be impressed with Jacob’s rendition of his famed pieces."
