After seeing a friend blowing glass in Oregon I was hooked. In late 96 I got my first torch and set up a workshop with 2 friends. 14 years later I still love getting on the torch and melting glass every day. The technical nature of glass and the ability to be so creative with it are great inspiration to me. First thinking up ideas, designs and colors, then figuring out how to pull it off. I want to say thank you for supporting Canadian glass, we've got some great people up here! Thanks, Hippo.
