To help the plight of the honey bees I have developed a new line of glass floats called Bee Preservers. The bees can drink water without drowning

Tell us about your business.

I create Uncommon Art for Exceptional Gardens. Hand blown glass fountains, sculptures and lighting. No job is too large or too small. I take pride in my artwork and how to best combine it in garden settings for harmonious co-existence. With each new job I continue to learn and expand the limits of glass as a garden accent. I am committed to providing each customer the best advice and direction possible.

What makes your business stand out?

Using glass as a permanent garden accent is relatively new concept. Glass is much more durable than most realize. My garden art is designed to withstand all growing zones in all seasons without fertilizer or water. Providing year round color and whimsey to the most discerning garden.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Go with the flow and follow your own heart. Learn as you grow and continue to push the envelop!
