Studio Photo
This is a mostly solo operation, with me being the primary artist and my husband Paul as my shop manager. ;) As I work full-time in an office and go to school part-time, this is a small but precious part of my "free time."

I began my journey into glass via beadwork, starting in seed beads. I became addicted to buying colorful and unique beads, and the only way to kick the habit was to make my own. This is why I began melting glass: I wanted truly unique beads to use in my own handcrafted jewelry. However, once I began making my own beads, I realized how exciting sculpture and pendants are to make, so our studio was born of a realized passion for hard glass, enabling us to create natural visions of animals, plant life, and abstract ideas.

I try to blog once in a while when I have something interesting to mention for you friends, and we have a Facebook fan page if you'd like to see what we're up to periodically (our newest items often pop up there first!). We strive to create unique glass art, and you will find many of our pieces are inspired by our love of nature. If you love unusual things and nature, be sure to check out our gallery pages to see our past favorites, and visit our shop for our newest creations.

Glass is our passion, so please join us in our appreciation of all that is hard (borosilicate, pyrex) glass and nature. If you have any questions or special requests, please contact us. Thanks for visiting!
