Jim Kervin began his glass odyssey making a stained glass lampshade which launched him off into his glass journey. He has also produced many other stained glass projects including church and residential window commissions. He continued to immerse himself further in the world of glass, mastering glassworking techniques that include fusing, pâte de verre, kiln casting, glassblowing, sandblasting, coldworking, adhesive sculpture and flameworking.
Jim is internationally known for the 15 books that he has written on working with glass mostly in the area of flameworking glass beads, which have sold almost 60,000 copies worldwide. He has also served for a number of years on the board of directors of the ISGB, the International Society of Glass Beadmakers, and has been honored by them with the first Hall of Flame Award.
