CULTURE ||

For more than 20 years, award-winning sculptor and designer Elizabeth Lyons has been working in her craft of glass and sculpting. Elizabeth is the founder and director of More Fire Glass Studio... here in our city and has been so for the last 16 years.

More Fire Glass Studio When we came in to visit More Fire Glass Studio, Elizabeth and resident artist Jennifer Schinzing, who have been working together for the last 9 years, showed us just what it takes to create the beautiful glass pieces and vases that are adoring the walls of the gallery.

The Gallery Once a new piece is started, there's no stopping, no coffee break, no bathroom break! until it's done. The process cannot be stopped or interrupted.
