James and Joyce Glynn are marking 25 years in their craft. They are the only employees in their tin lighting business. It was started it in 1982, when James decided to leave his New York banking job and turn a hobby into a full time business.
In l994, his wife who is a quilter, joined him in the business and uses her precision to hand pierce the traditional designs in all of their tinware. They have been featured in numerous publications including the New York Times and Colonial Home magazine.
