Meet the Maker

Thanks for stopping by.  My name is Felicia, I am originally from California.  While serving in the US Air Force I lived in Mississippi, Missouri, Turkey, then ended up making Oklahoma my home.

I remember being mesmerized watching a PBS special on glassblowing when I was 8 years old.  Decades later I found myself at a glassblowing studio watching my son and his cousin make Christmas ornaments, I was absolutely in awe.  

I couldn’t stop talking about glassblowing, a couple years later I was given an intro lesson for Christmas.  As I walked into the studio for my first lesson, I noticed a sign that explained that cremation ashes were used to make the beautiful orbs that sat on the shelf.  Having recently lost my younger sister in a motorcycle accident, it was easy to see how special this was.  I told myself I would one day make something like this for our father.  After countless hours of gathering 2100 degree molten glass out of a furnace, reheating in a 2400 degree glory hole, blowing, shaping and coaxing glass into vases, birds, seashells, and various other things, I knew it was finally time to make a piece celebrating my sister’s life.

I have made several orbs and vases containing cremains of people’s loved ones and pets.  Seeing how these memorial pieces have helped people with their grief has been most humbling.

How it’s Made

I gather hot molten glass that is about 2100 degress out of a furnace on the end of a steel pipe.  Constantly turning the pipe so the molten glass doesn’t end up on the floor, color is added by rolling the gathered glass in small bits of colored glass called frit.  The color is melted in by placing into the 2400 degree glory hole.  Then various tools are used to shape the piece, reheating ever couple minutes so it does not crack.  Once the piece is ready, I knock it off and place in the annealer, an oven that allows the glass to slowly cool down over the next 12-24 hours.
