Our Story-My husband and I moved to Arcata to attend Humboldt State University in 1993. I graduated with an art major, business minor, focusing on jewelry, lithography and sculpture. We sort of fell into glassblowing toward the end of college. I started to incorporate glass into other mediums. Eventually creating a successful wholesale glass manufacturing business. We are always finding something new to make in glass and always trying to find uses to up-cycle scrap glass...which is how zen gardens were created. I starting creating little vessels and planting succulents from our garden and selling to our local stores. Garden is unique and created first with blowing the vessel. I then select the perfect succulent from our garden to plant inside. Then I finish it off with the perfect polished rock from our beach combing collection (from agate beach in Northern CA). So much inspiration and so much joy discovering new things. I am excited to introduce and
share our work to the masses.
