Jerry Ward got started in stained glass when he quit smoking cigarettes as a hobby to keep busy and quickly started a passion for glass making .
He was soon interested in Flame worked Glass and pursued finding ways to further his knowledge. Jerry took a class with his mentor (Paul Stankard) online to further his knowledge and studied other artists. After making his first Rose he received a call from his mentor congratulating him on making “The best Rose he had seen in 50 years”.
Jerry uses an oxygen propane torch to make my roses and anneals them in a kiln.
Jerry sells his roses online through Etsy and through his Facebook shop.
