Tim deJong - Owner, Head Gaffer
Tim was born in Saskatchewan, Canada. He studied ceramics, sculpture and glass at Alfred University in New York. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in glass art from Tyler's School of Art at Temple University located in Pennsylvania.
In 1991, Tim came to Texas on vacation and fell in love with the Texas Hill Country. Within a year of his visit, he purchased property and opened Wimberley Glassworks just south of the village of Wimberley TX. Tim is the sole owner and employs three other full time glassblowers.
In 2006, WGW moved to a new and larger location. What started as a small shop with a few lawn chairs for visitors to view glassblowing has grown into an air-conditioned shop with seating for 90 people. Tim has built WGW into the Southwest's premiere art glass and custom lighting studio. Wimberley Glassworks collections and lighting can be seen in homes worldwide.
