Process photos of glass blowing... How it all starts!!

The interplay of light and color from a Tiffany lamp left a lasting
impression on Cynthia when she was a child. In 1980 she began her work
with glass and developed her expertise in the glass art techniques of
stained glass, glass fusing, slumping and glass blowing. She holds degrees
from Ohio State University and San Diego State University. Cynthia has
attended Pilchuck School of Glass as both a student and a teaching
assistant. During the past thirty years she has studied and worked with many highly
internationally recognized glass artists, and became one herself!

I have been blowing glass for over 30 years. I built Alaska's first 3000 sq ft hot glass studio in Anchorage, have owned and operated 3 glass galleries and have trained numerous glass apprentices, who have gone on to become famous, with their own careers.

"I have a reverence for life I believe strongly in following your heart and passions no matter where they may lead you. To never have tried to follow your dreams is the greatest of all tragedies. I believe Maya Angelou when she said, "believe people when
they show you who they really are..." one of the best lessons of this decade for me. I can't believe I now speak in "decades"... only "old people do that! I can get my own AARP card... now that is a bit much. I am blessed with a friend's motto that "looking good is the best revenge"...and hope they find a cure for old age... but I guess that will never
afflict me because I will never grow up... it's me and Tinkerbell all the way.
"I am blessed... I do what I want to do on a daily basis. I live out my own dreams. I build my own yellow brick road. I follow my passion every day. I have been truly bless with new Love and new friends, as well as friends I have had since elementary school who are still very much in my life

I want to Make Art and play in the glass every day. I LOVE to blow glass.
What a celebration of life! What a dream come true.
