Episode 191: Steven Geller-From Weekend Warrior to Full-time Artist 
 
This weeks episode was a ton of fun to record. Steven and I had a great chat about his early beginnings as a weekend warrior glass blower to where he is now as a full-time artist.  He finds that his favorite items to make are customs made for a specific person.  He shares how he was able to go from working a full-time job as a delivery driver to behind the torch full-time as well as some fun ideas on marketing and selling your glass.

My name is Steven Geller (Steller) born and raised in stockton California.  I was introduced to the flame at the end of 2002 at the age of 18 and began my own journey in March of 2003 at 19. I learned sorta cave Man style with a lot of trial and error but came to be what I am now because of the friends I have who don’t accept “good enough”. Starting a family young I was a weekend warrior glass blower working all week and getting only my free time which was scarce to blow glass.  It was my one true hobby until 2015 when I was convinced by some friends to try a trade show and with no time to work I managed to make enough glass to convince my self I could make a living. I’ve since won 2nd place in the 2017 glassblowers challenge which is a team event at acala glass studio in Oakland ca then the following year won 1st is the 2018 glassblowers challenge.  I’ve participated in a couple Boro derby’s now, the most recent of which being at the glass Vegas event where I managed to get recognized with 2 award for my derby car. My education is actually very limited.  Until sitting in a salt lesson at east coast Melt 2 years ago I’ve never really experienced a class setting in the art but over the past few years getting out more and collaborating with more and more artists I have had the opportunity to ask questions and learn so much in a short period of time...

Episode 190: Lacey (Laceface) St. George..."Elements of a Warrior"

     Lacey (LaceFace) St. George was born in Grants Pass, Oregon. She was exposed to the blossoming art form of glass blowing and pipe making from an early age. Determined from the beginning to create beauty, Lacey fell in love with the color, fluidity, and form of glass the moment she began working on the torch in 2004.
     
     Lacey spent the next several years concentrating on her growing skills as a glass artist while simultaneously putting herself through school. After graduating with an associate degree in the Arts, she become heavily involved in the expanding glass pipe art movement. In 2009, Lacey began attending several trade shows and flame off competitions around the country, her dedication was rewarded by her receiving several of  the pipe industries highest honor’s and awards of achievements. Wishing to evolve her artistry even further, Lacey St. George found that collaborations with her friends and peers helped her to accomplish creative and innovative artworks and also enable her to think and work outside of her comfort zone. Now Lacey creates with many of the industries most renowned artists, motivated as a community leader to push the limitations of glass art. Her modern masterpieces of glass art exemplify the power and spirit of this amazing woman and also speak volumes for her determination to succeed as a leading woman in the male dominated glass art industry.  
 
The medium of glass is my doctrine, teaching me the ways of patience, discipline, and determination.  Daily I praise the fluid like forms while dancing with the flames, willing them to speak, and to show me the light.           -Lacey St. George

Episode 189- Pedro Grime..Accelerated Learning Through Necessity

     "Here is a brief summary and why you may or may not like my pipes. I was born and raised in Los Angeles California before moving and settling to Colorado Springs with my wife. My wife has four children, myself included. I became obsessed with glass the moment I tried melting boro in December of 2013. Since starting I have had the honor of placing at several Champs glass games events as well as a Firepower Production event. I enjoy the Neverending lessons that glass has to offer as they are the only thing that seems the quell the voices raging inside."-Pedro
