Anne Hintz

anne 147x172I took my first stained glass class while awaiting the birth of my first daughter in 1994. I have always had a passion for stained glass windows, and knowing I could never afford them, I decided to make my own. Most of my pieces have been done for other people, friends and family. I actually have few pieces of my own. My favorite style of glass panels are the architectural ones. Pieces you would find in actual windows. I typically design my own pieces, often being inspired by historical windows. The pieces I have done for friends are unique to them. I have also left behind pieces when moving: A transom window in Tiskilwa, IL, a door window in Brookfield. It felt like they belonged there. As a full time veterinary assistant and mom, I don’t always have the time I would like to create. Not to mention other hobbies that share my time. Now with the kids grown, I have room to expand! My future aspirations are to advance my leaded glass skills and someday design and build a small Rose Window. As you can see, few of my pieces are for sale, some have been borrowed back for this show. If you see something you like, or have an idea for a panel for yourself, I would be happy to make one just for you.
Thank You and Enjoy! annestainglass 240x65                                                                          My sister's front door:
                                                                                                                              

 

 

Beth Schultz

My name is Beth Schulz and while I was born in Thomasville, North Carolina, I have enjoyed living in Marshall, IL, since 1989. Stained glass is my craft and my art. Many years ago, more years than I want to say, a friend suggested I go with her to Paris, IL, to take a beginner stained glass class. It lasted for three hours and I left with a sad little four piece stained glass heart and the certain knowledge that I was hooked and could not wait to do more. I am self taught since that one lesson and have enjoyed the journey of making beautiful creations for windows, doors and cabinets and sun catchers. I have participated in many of the area’s Summer and Fall festivals, and my commissioned work is in homes all around the country from Illinois and Indiana to North Carolina, New York, Minnesota, Ohio, Texas and more. Over the years I have taught many beginning classes to others and have watched a few become enthusiastic hobbyists who continue to this day in their own studios.

 

Jim Nestleroad

Jim began the stained glass craft in 1982, when his mother read in the Terre Haute Tribune, about a stained glass class being offered at a craft shop there. She thought it would be nice to have some stained glass windows in their Victorian home in Martinsville. Sounding like a unique hobby, Jim took the class and learned the craft. The project he made in class was a 8” X 14” Iris panel. His first windows were made specifically for the family home, and in the Victorian style. Over the last 35 years, he has made hundreds of stained glass pieces, from smaller sun catchers, to larger window panels, transoms and cabinet doors. The largest piece Jim made was a peacock panel. This panel was made over a 4 month period in 2016. It has 855 hand cut pieces of glass, taking 115 hours to complete. Locally he made the eight red and clear bevel panels in the Marshall Library. While Jim does enjoy cutting glass, he prefers to keep it a hobby. He has done, and continues to do some consignment work, as time allows.
