Thomas D’Ercole

Master Glass Craftsman

Thomas began working with glass with his dad when he was a young teenager, in the Hurleys Stained Glass Studio. It was his first love. When he got in trouble in high school, he agreed to fix the lamps in the janitor’s room, but then invoiced his principal — and he paid! He was hooked and has been working with glass ever since — from historic church renovations to custom work. Thomas loves working with students from New Campus (students in TBAISD diagnosed with Emotional Impairment) as the art form is very self-rewarding and unique.

Thomas’ work can be seen at https://www.facebook.com/traverseartglass.architecturalglass/ , as well as Kirkbride Hall in the Grand Traverse Commons, and many other local homes and historical locations.
