Caleb Prater was Born in Tucson,Arizona and started blowing glass in early 2011. Drawn to the flame b the bright lights in his neighbors garage, led Caleb to the journey that he is still on. He learned a lot of basic principles regarding production that started with basic techniques like wrap and rake spoons.. It was a way to make some extra cash on the side while he still worked as a delivery driver for a local sandwich shop during the lunch rush. This afforded him to continue to pursue this new found passion. As he continued on he couldn't shake glass the bug so finally took the plunge and decided to quit his job and go full time.

Episode 180- Jennifer S. Levine..Lovi'n Life and Livi'n in Love
Jennifer S. Levine was born in Dallas, Texas. She spent her childhood trapped in books, museums and all other curiosity, which fed her imagination or got paint under her nails. When most teens would run into mischief with their first set of car keys, Ms. Levine would run to the DMA (Dallas Museum of Art) or fourth floor of the Dallas Public Library to render from the masters and explore the etymology of human discourse through artistic expression. She eventually saw these pieces in person, traveling the world with her sketchbooks and journals.
She studied Studio Art at The University of North Texas and Creative Writing at The University of Denver. After completing a yearlong glassblowing apprenticeship in 2001, she started her career as a professional glassblower. And in 2011 she founded FIREPOWER PRODUCTIONS.
Jennifer S. Levine believes in autodidactic living; the day one stops learning, one stops breathing. After 18 years in Denver, Colorado, she has returned to Dallas, Texas for a while as of 2017. Ms. Levine spends her free time laughing uncontrollably, cracking jokes, coaching small business owners and writing.
