Started Working with Glass:

BBQ Handmade Glass Coffee Cup

"I started working with glass 6 months after getting hired at Mountain Glass Arts. I always had an interest in glass art, mostly hot shop work, but had a great opportunity to try lampworking. They helped me get my first studio so I could work in my home studio. By learning lampworking, I gained product knowledge that I was able to pass along to customers and to MGA staff."
