Hi there, and welcome!

It has been addictive and contagious-- even my composer husband, Tom, began to tinker as well! Between the two of us, we figured we had a store. We combined his first name, with the first part of my last name, and TommyGunGlass was born. We hope you'll stay tuned for what's to come as we continue to develop our skill, style and online presence.

Thanks for stopping in!

Kara and Tom

P.S. I have had questions about my lamps, and if I'll ever consider making them again. A new and improved design (more durable, and easier to manufacture) is in the works, but it may be awhile before those become a reality.
