Here's Lesley's great video of Jim's lamps taken at his show at Fogarty Winery summer solstice 2011:


Here is a sampling of recent lamps that Jim has made while living at Struggle Mt. this last year.

Jim made this lamp for Tom (McHugh), based I believe on a Tiffany design. Roger Purdon (a Berkeley lawyer who helped on the Land lawsuit,
also a stained-glass artist himself) brought it across the country for us and hung it in our bedroom around 15 years ago, and it's still here.
Jim also made me a lamp that's in my daughter's room, and he once made me a stained-glass crown! Thank you Jim for your beautiful visions
-- they are treasures.
Much love, Rio

Jim passed away around 4 am on January 24, 2017.
He lived at Struggle Mountain for the last few yeas of his life, but needed more care the last 6 months and passed
away in a care facility
He will live on in all the beautiful lamps he made over the last 40 years. He learned stain glass from Lesley in the barn while living on The Land, and became a master lamp maker.
