kickinglass' Shop Policies


If you saw me on the street, you would most likely never imagine that I make lampwork beads and jewelry. I'm 63 years old, big and bad. Well, big but not so bad. My two children are grown, and I have three wonderful grandkids. I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 41 years.

So how did I get into lampworking? My daughter took a lampworking class in Dallas about five years ago, and said, "Dad, you'd love this stuff!" So I bought a book on lampworking. I wasn't too impressed by looking at the book until I started asking myself, "How did they do that?" And that's how it all began!

This is how I roll: I enjoy life to its fullest, and really don't care what others think,(one advantage of being old) especially about my hobby. I have also been known to help my wife make a quilt or two. In the past I've told my buddy's that if they laugh about the hobby's that I have then, "One of us is going to get there ass kicked, and it ain't going to be me." Thus, the origin of the name: Kickin' Glass.
