We are a husband and wife working out of a small studio in Loleta, California (a very small dairy town on the north coast).
I've been blowing glass full time for about twenty years. I've always enjoyed making things with my hands; working with glass, wood, or metal. I really enjoy the creativity of glass blowing. I'm also a musician, with an interest in early music (medieval, renaissance, and baroque music). I mainly play viola da gamba. I also write music for film, tv, and games (but haven't updated my music page for many years http://ci-studios.com/)
My wife, Kelly, has also done glass work for about twenty years. Currently she divides her professional time between glass blowing and oil painting (http://www.kellyleal.com/). Kelly is also a musician with an interest in early music. She plays violin, and we play in a string quartet together.
We live on a couple of acres of land (where our studio is located); along with our two young sons, two cats, one dog, and a flock of chickens.
