Jamison Entry (from American Bungalow Magazine)

A few years ago we met an architect, Kent Jamison, who was building his own home in a tiny town in Texas.  Periodically, he’d order new windows for us to design and build, each one representing a fond memory.

We’d do a window or two, wrap them up, then send them to Texas with our fingers crossed – never getting to see in person the final result.

Kent Jamison is an award-winning architect, and his Texas home is shared with the world in the Spring 2018 issue of American Bungalow Magazine.  You can see some of it in a sneak peek of the issue here, under “Craftsman Intimacy on a Grand Scale:  A Contemporary Craftsman That Reflects Treasured Memories”.

These images are from the fish windows we built for the master washroom – taken from Kent’s photos while he and his wife were snorkeling in exotic waters.  As head designer and special projects manager at Glass Images and Creations, projects like this are a lot of fun – even if I don’t get to build all the windows myself.

On this particular set (still ongoing) of windows, the whole gang chipped in – the hands in the fish photos are of our Bill Jackman (who has been designing and building stained glass windows since the earth’s crust started cooling), and other windows have been built or worked on by Laura, Reuben, Nobel, and our painting meister Josh.
