Episode 196: Josh St.George- Talking Family, Glass, and Winning Round-1 in Season 2 Tournament of Fire


     I've been on the torch since I was 12 years old when I started making marbles in a family owned workshop. From there I worked my way up using the name Yoshi glass since I was always jumping around. As I grew and matured in life and in my art I took more pride in my given name and now sign all my work "St George." I like to challenge myself to try to make new designs, using my old techniques and making new ones as I go. When I'm not on the torch I build up my 4x4 truck, work on my house, my RC trucks and spend time with my with wife and baby girl. I love being a glass artist and having the opportunity to balance work and play. There is a constant evolution in this industry and I'm excited to see where it takes us.-St.George

Episode 194: Geremiah Benge- Finding diversity to be the key to success
 
Bio: I'm Geremiah Benge of Benge Bang Glass. I'm 23, born in Houston, Tx and raised in the far out skirts in a town called Livingston. I've always had this drawing passion for all art, whether it be pencil drawings, music, or most currently, lampworking. I was enticed into the flame a little over a year ago by a good friend, and have been on this whirlwind journey ever since. As a dwarf amongst giants, I feel I am making my own way and forging friendships in the glass community that I wouldn't be able to do without putting myself out there and being knowledgeable about my trades. Whether my inspiration be this podcast, nature, or even dungeons and dragons, I isolate it, and execute what's in my thoughts. A quote I live by is from the football player Emmitt Smith. "All men are created equal, some work harder in preseason."

East Coast Melt

     Come spend five days at Independent Lake Camp in Northeastern PA on September 10th - 14th, 2018, surrounded with like minded people. Not only will you get to see some of the best glassblowing in the country, but you'll also have access to as much torch time as you can handle. Learn from established artists through glass demonstrations and informative seminars. Come with a group and stay in one of the summer camp style cabins on site--complete with full baths and electricity. When you wake up, our kitchen staff will be prepared to provide you with three square meals a day, as well as late-night snacks. We will keep you fed, as you will need your energy to handle the many activities available at this camp. Including, but not limited to, a skate park, BMX track, paddle boats, canoeing and kayaking. To cap off each night, enjoy DJs throughout the week in the torch tent area. Be prepared for a couple great bands on Friday night and a spectacular fireworks display. Think of it as a summer camp for glass blowers. It's going to be the experience of a lifetime.
