I am speechless holding this book in my hand...all I can do is smile.
This book and the people in it mean so much to me.
Looking back on the past 19 months, I moved to three different places. Each of them I called home; twice in phoenix and back to Cal, City, IL. I travelled to Turkey, filmed Life on the Rails: The Video in North Carolina, visited Mt. Mitchell: the highest peak in mainland eastern North America, became an uncle, and snowboarded the Rockies. All inspired the creation of this book in some way. Words of encouragement from so many people made it all possible.
For the remainder of the year, I will slowly piece together an international book tour in the US, Canada, and Europe. In 2018, I am honored with a residency in Australia. After that, I’ll find a new home to write the Advanced Book!! I’m not sure where it’ll be yet, but I’m excited about it.
The first 100 book are almost all sold! Future orders may be delayed an extra few weeks until the next shipment comes in. All copies ordered through me will be signed unless otherwise noted.

Time to start shipping books!!!!!
Enjoy the weekend! I know I will.
I was raised in Calumet City, IL. My professional glassblowing career led me to Phoenix, AZ and the coast of Carlsbad, CA. where I was given the opportunity to teach glassblowing classes. Notes and chalk drawings of different techniques for the students resulted in my current book project.
