Our home and studio is in rural Lancaster County Pennsylvania, just outside the Village of Clay. We share our space with our two teenage sons, an Irish Wolfhound, a pound puppy and three creatures of the feline persuasion. We are Baha'is.
August through October we can be found sharing the glass making process, where we give a "Blow by Blow" description during our demonstrations, at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire.
In the past we've taken a portable studio to a variety of locations, until Annie (Superwoman in disguise!) tried to move the furnace on the count of 2 instead of 3, putting her back out in the process. Now we stay much closer to home.
For a time in 1994 we were the "Artists in Residence" for the Stiegal Glassworks of the Manheim Historical Society.
In 1995 we spent some time in Tampa Florida, where we were contracted to design and build a hot shop for the M.O.S.I. (Museum of Science & Industry).
Of the two of us only Annie works with the beads, but we do work together making beads in our studio the traditional way.
**We are Blessed that we are able to live and work together as we do.**

Here are a few pictures of us doing an outdoor show with the portable studio. Mid-December, about 32 degrees. (One of the warmer days!)
