In a world of new beginnings, starting over with young children and an unknown town I stepped out of my comfort zone into a lampworked/glass blowing job that what would, unknowingly, later turn out to be a beloved profession. Taking this job as a glassblower was new territory as I had minimal experience actually blowing glass and creating lampworked pieces at that time. However, I was able to use my previous knowledge of glass and apply that to learning this new technique. I worked in this studio in Prescott, Arizona for roughly two years, continuously gaining experience and expertise, before moving to California and setting up my own Lampworking space. I have now been creating Lampworked Glass for over 23 years and the rest, they say, is history.
