We've always needed the enrichment of art in our lives. However, working, marrying and having children, postponed our pursuing this side of our talents for a few years. Now with grandchildren, tucked safely in the care of their parents we are at last free to follow our dreams.
However, while raising our families, we had broadened our interest into another art form, glass carving and etching.
This newfound desire led us to the Professional Glass Consultants school in New Mexico owned by Norm and Ruth Dobbins. The Dobbins are international carving instructors, having taught in England, Holland, Germany and over 30 other countries.
Having completed the training, we experimented with our new abilities and went beyond glass. We started with carving on various stones, marble, granite, slate, etc. What we found was an exciting new medium that produced beautiful art pieces and, as we have been told, has lead us into a field that is being done nowhere else in the country.
