We are starting a small series of Blog posts about our team here at Fire & Light. We look forward to introducing you to all of the pieces of our puzzle.
I’m happy to introduce Justin, our lead glass craftsman. He casts and presses our glassware into the beautiful items in your home. He has been with us for 13 years, and has made many of the items on our shelves.
Justin grew up in Humboldt County and graduated from a local high school. He obtained two degrees from Humboldt State University in History and Religious Studies. He is married to Nilda and has two daughters, Darissa, age 12 and Elora, age 8.
Justin got his start at Fire & Light while working at a local video store. He decided he wanted a job with benefits, applied to Fire & Light without knowing we were hiring, and was hired and taught glass pouring on-the-go. Justin says the hardest pieces to make are our Splash Vase and our Large Tumbler.
