About

Glass is amazing—beautiful to behold and highly addictive to play with. I have been working with glass since 1975, sharing my lifelong passion through demonstrations and books as well as teaching at schools, conferences and studios around the world. Here I will offer my love for borosilicate glass shaped in a gas-oxygen flame, including techniques, travels, experiments and occasional ruminations on the artist's life. My goal is to help you enjoy glass more deeply, as an artist, spectator or collector. I will also make available some of my process and discoveries with exclusive content. Your participation informs my journey and the community of lampwork glassblowers, as we share information and inspiration for the benefit of all. Your support also helps me organize my archive of photos, videos and other information to distill, edit and publish future book projects.

Please remember that you are responsible for your own safety. Working with glass has inherent dangers, including getting burned or cut. You know the drill: Exercise appropriate caution when attempting anything you see in my videos. Children should be supervised when working with glass.
Goals
$122.73 of $500 per month
Just getting ready to launch a Patreon page is already forcing me to clean up my studio! When I get to $500 per month in patron support I will also upgrade to a quieter exhaust fan in the room where I record glassblowing videos. Right now I turn the fan down a bit too low, to avoid distracting background noise. I've needed to upgrade this fan and ductwork for a while but your support will kick me in the butt and make it actually happen!
