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...
