"The window is perfect! Thanks!
- Karl P. Griffith, AIA, Griffith Dardanellie Architects, PC
"I can't say how much we appreciate the process and the final product of our dealings with Pickel Studios. The windows are absolutely amazing and breath-taking. I cannot wait for my congregation to see them this Sunday.
"But not only that, the skill, professionalism, and integrity of your workers (and you) have not gone unnoticed. We are very, very pleased. I look forward to the time when we work with Pickel Studios again to replace the rest of our windows, and I certainly hope that time comes soon!
- Blessings, Brice W. Ullman, Rector, Anglican Church of the Redeemer, Chattanooga, Tenessee
"The thing that impressed me the most was how easy it was to work with Paul; how easy it was to get your ideas across and to have him listen. He was great to work with."
- Robert Roussin, Indian River Memorial Hospital
"They are excellent artisans. It's magnificent. We've had people drop by just to see the windows. Pickel's a professional in every sense of the word."
- Spokesperson, St. Sebastian Church
"The stained glass window in the Gifford Youth Activities Center had more complimentary comments than anything else in our building. I think it is absolutely magnificent and, every time I see it, I get a warm feeling inside. It certainly sets the building up as something special. I personally can't thank you enough for presenting it to the Youth Activities Center."
- Dan K. Richardson
The circular window at the Gifford Youth Activity Center is patterned after an African Kente cloth.
"A friend of ours who lives at Johns Island remembered that we had told her about our being so pleased with your work for us in creating three beautiful stained glass windows. She very thoughtfully sent us a copy of Vero Beach magazine (November/December issue) - and it was great to read the wonderful article about your studio! We especially enjoyed seeing the photo of Lyn Durham, who designed the figures for our windows. Congratulations - all the fine comments about you, your staff, and your studio are so well deserved."
- Wini Amaturo
"This is just a short note to thank you for the wonderful representatives you sent to work in our church, taking down and putting up, your magnificent works of art. We never doubted the craftsmanship of your company, but there is always that concern of those coming to work in our church environment and you certainly need to know our praise and thankfulness for them. Again, thank you and tell them for us we wish they lived close to us! Probably would have to adopt them some how."
- Sharon Gane, First United Methodist Church, Dunnellon, Florida
"CONGRATULATIONS … on your celebrity, and the nice coverage in the Press Journal. It was so nice to see your talents being acknowledged, and to be described as ‘nationally known’. We can certainly attest to that! Needless to say, we were also very impressed to learn that your stained glass work in Justice, Il. landed you in the Guiness Book of Records. That's really cool.
We had admired the Downtown Vero Beach sign, but had no idea it was your creation. Now, of course, we can understand the use of the Hibiscus flower, and its relation to the Hibiscus Festival. Being a native of these parts, it's easy to see how your background was perfectly suited to coming up with something so indigenous to Vero Beach. Bravo, on a job well done."
