Hi friends, new and old! I'm Ben. I currently live in a van with my dog Fey and we are traveling around the country blowing glass! All of your support means the world to me! Thank you for helping keep the dream alive! All procceeds from this site will be going straight to gas $$ as we know how pricey its getting these days! Much love all!
Ben was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. After graduating Tucson High in '07, Ben set out to a year living in Israel; traveling, volunteering, learning Hebrew and more. Afterwards Ben went to art school at Minneapolis College of Art and Design, furthering his studies in Design, Photography and all else art. After 2 years he wasn't quite getting what he wanted so he set out to California.
There in the Bay Area he was first introduced to glass. Ben knew he wouldn't have been able to succeed at it alone, so when MrGray was looking for an apprentice, he jumped at the first opportunity to do so. Ben quickly moved up to Humboldt after meeting MrGray and I guess you can say the rest is history.
