Big Break?


For the last few weeks I have been researching stained glass companies here in SLC and asking if any of them will have positions open around when I graduate. Of all the emails I sent out, I got one response. Mike Green from Green Glass Art contacted me about three days ago saying that he would be needing some help on a few projects and would love me to come down to his studio and talk to him in person. I was so excited I almost wet myself! He informed me that while he didn't have any full-time positions open right now, several of his project-by-project employees have gone on to full time positions in other glass studios. So that was encouraging.


Mike and his company have done work for many LDS Temples, the Assembly Hall, The Joseph Smith Memorial Building, etc. Please, check out his site, on the ARTISTS BIO page, and see all the work he has done!

That is really cool. I didn't know that was such a big interest for you. I hope you find that right job. You are totally awesome with the stained glass. From what I have seen from your work.
