DeMoss Glass Art Scales Mt. Fuji

Oh the land of Samurai, Sumo and Sushi!
We have a lot going on there these days! Jesse now has a permanent collection in the Kobe Lampwork Glass Museum. Iine!
A few years ago, our great friends Chad & Joe headed to Japan to live, learn, teach and love. They have humbled us by creating Humble Glass Imports to sell our work! It has been a great partnership! Thanks guys! Arigato!

Also, because of them, a Finder's Keepers rock is "somewhere" on Mt. Fuji.

Ganbatte Kudasai!

Finally, we would like to send an ice cream "e-cone" to our good friend Yuuki Nitta who apprenticed with Jesse. We wish you the best Yuuki!

Wow...It's been awhile!

Whew! We are back on the Blog! A lot has happened since we last posted a year ago! Jesse and I welcomed our baby boy Cohen into the world on November 29, 2008. He is our little tank and truly a joy. After he was born, all we wanted to do is sit and stare at him. Needless to say, we weren't out in the shop too much at the end of last year. BUT, we are back! Jesse is as busy as ever! We can't wait for the day that Cohen can fire up the torch create is own beautiful work next to his Papa.

Publicity Update

The McCall Home article written by master word magician Eric Ellis has hit newstands. We could not be more pleased with the article in which he truly captures our story of glass and romance. We hope to have it available to be read soon on our website. Thanks Eric!

Also, we recently learned that one of our floral bouquets has made the cover of Annealer Magazine.

Finally, a big thanks to Cottages and Bungalows and Idaho Media for their support in featuring our doorknobs!

Fried Dill Pickles

Tomorrow, Jesse and I are headed South to Charleston, SC. Our good friends are graciously hosting an art show for us and Bisbee's mom, the famous Megan (Fairfield) Henderson (http://www.meganfairfield.com/). I hear that fried dill pickles are a must down there! A pregnant woman's dream!
