workathomedad's Shop Announcement

My name is Matt. I am 37 and work from my home based glass studio in the small town of Cottage Grove Oregon. I have been flameworking glass for 11 years. Many of my designs have been featured in magazines and are sold world wide.

I am single father who has recently transplanted from Silverlake in Los Angeles to a small town in the Pacific Northwest. We left behind an established gallery and clientèle for a more natural environment for my son and I. I now work from home (an awesome 107 year old farmhouse) and am able to play a very active role in my son’s everyday life. The move did have its challenges, but luckily the internet and Etsy have been a great way to transition into a rural life.

We're living our dream. Our dream for a simple, successful life where our hard work and strong family bonds help make a better community. We purchase renewable energy for our home and studio. We use recycled packing materials and office supplies. Many of our orders are delivered to the post office in our bicycle trailer. I hope with a conscious effort maybe there will still be clean air and water for the children of tomorrow.
Please remember that many of the products in on my etsy site are original designs, but not necessarily one of a kind. Many of the items will vary slightly in shape and color due to the handmade nature of glass art.
Thanks for buying handmade and supporting a local craftsman. Please contact me with any comment or questions. I am open to ideas you may have for your next project. Custom colors are available.
