Pittsburgh Artist Terri Hohmann has created eight incredible glass pieces for the PVGP to auction.

Artist and car enthusiast, Terri Hohmann, has created an incredible collection of handcrafted, glass fused plaques and signs for the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix. Terri, of North Star Chevrolet Buick GMC, has invested countless hours and materials to create each and every one of these unique pieces. The PVGP is so pleased that Terri has dedicated her time to create these unique masterpieces to benefit our charities.

This spring, during the COVID lockdown, Terri decided to fill her time doing something for charity. She painstakingly cut hundreds of glass pieces and assembled these items for the PVGP. Each layer had to be fired in her kiln at home and many required more than a dozen firings with each session putting the piece at risk.

Terri not only designed and created these pieces of art, but she also paid for all of the materials and is generously donating all of the proceeds from the sale of these pieces to the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix and their charity partners.

The PVGP races in Schenley Park have often been referred to as a museum on wheels and these works of art belong in that museum. See the items below, they speak for themselves.

SHELL OIL PLAQUE

The origin of the Shell name can be traced back to the seashells that Marcus Samuel imported from the Far East during the late 19th Century. When his sons were looking for a name for the kerosene that they were exporting to Asia, they chose Shell.

Artist: Terri Hohmann

As a long time Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix enthusiast, this year I utilized my love for stained glass and turned this passion into creations to raise funds for the charity. While attempting these “One of a kind” creations, I took to my studio to pull these concepts from my head, visualize all items on paper and glass, and then began the project. These pieces were made strictly and exclusively for the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix. Each piece stands in a class of its own, representing phenomenal attention to detail, sacrificed time, and days of dedicated work, resulting in an item beyond compare.

Please keep in mind these pieces of art came with blunder and disappointment at times during their creation. Not every piece came out right on the first try. There are trial and error, hold your breath type of process when creating a masterpiece as any artist would explain. It is the passion, dedication, true love and interest of the item that gets within your soul while bringing your proposed design to life. Hoping, to, inspire others, once they are complete.

While absorbing all costs during the construction of each piece from disaster to the finished product, I was supported financially by North Star Chevrolet Buick GMC, who was able to see my proposed vision, along with their obvious enthusiasm for the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix.

In closing, these remarkably timeless pieces of rare handmade art will never go out of style, always be a conversation piece, and allow the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix to be proudly displayed in your office or home.

Respectfully,

Terri Hohmann – Creator
