Zimmerman Art Glass has been a staple of Corydon, Indiana since 1942. For Kerry Zimmerman, a fourth-generation glass artist, his family’s shop is a place where the community can gather. “It’s a real family-oriented place,” he says. He demonstrates his craft to community members and school children from around the state. Kerry believes that his job is about more than just creating beautiful art; he also wants to help educate people by making each piece and experience personal. Kerry learned the family craft from his father Joe Zimmerman, but moved the small family shop “into town” so that it would remain viable for generations to come. Today, he is teaching the fifth and sixth generations of Zimmermans their family craft. Kerry has twice served as a master artist in Traditional Arts Indiana’s Apprenticeship Program.
