One of the only artist in the world to discover how to create lava out of glass. It is exciting for me to share my innovations. Allowing guest to have an opportunity to make their own lava out of glass, blessing it with their own breath. I began my path as a glass artist with apprenticeships at two glass houses. What started out as a learning process turned into a full-time teaching experience doing demos and workshops for visitors. Now Living in Hawaii for the past 15 years. I have been fortunate to witness the awesome power of Kilauea eruption‘s. While giving visitors guided tours of the lava fields I was inspired by Pele’s powerful flow of creation and destruction. Observing the break out and flow of lava. I am truly passionate about sharing my knowledge and experience. Within a safe and comfortable “hands-on” atmosphere!
