Description: The Conrad Pickel Studio was founded in 1947 in Milwaukee, WI, by sculptor, painter and stained glass artist Conrad Pickel (1906-1994). Born in Germany, Pickel grew up in Munich, where he studied at the Art Academy and learned the art of stained glass as a young apprentice in the Franz Mayer Studio. He came to the United States in 1927. During the next twenty years Pickel worked for various studios: Von Gerichten Studio in Columbus, Ohio; Judson Studios in Los Angeles; Connick Studio in Boston; and Conrad Schmitt Studio in Milwaukee. The 1930s included a brief studio partnership with Edward Hiemer and Edward's father George. The same period also saw Pickel's marriage to Joan Friedlemaier, daughter of his co-worker Karl Friedlemaier, a glass-painter. Their marriage produced two children, Emma and Paul. Pickel's studio, located at first in his Milwaukee home, was soon moved to larger quarters in nearby Waukesha and eventually into a three-floor building he built at New Berlin, WI, for his rapidly growing business. In 1956 he opened a branch studio at Vero Beach, FL, to which the entire studio operation relocated in 1977. The Pickels also moved to Florida, where they built a home, first at Pompano and then at Boynton Beach. Conrad's son Paul Pickel, a past president of the Stained Glass Association of America, now oversees the Pickel Studio at Vero Beach. A West Coast branch office of the studio was opened in San Diego, CA in 2000.
