Being a glass artist and maker is the closest thing I think of to becoming a wizard. Glass blowing gives me the ability to take a material, and transform what is in my imagination and dreams into physical form. The main tools in glassblowing are the 4 essential elements of life–Fire, Earth, Wind and Water. Glass is all around us; it is in everything, from our drinking glasses, to our windows in our homes, and in our smart devices. Glass can even be used to create energy and give power to electronics. I believe that by being a glass artist and maker I have the power to literally shape the future.
