Jared grew up as the youngest of fourteen in what could easily be described as “The Partridge Family”. At one point or another all of the children played in the family band, and all children played multiple instruments. All family gatherings consisted of a jam, where each individual would rotate instruments and rotate family members on stage. Years later, Jared has played in numerous bands but also was trained and worked as an HVAC technician for 15 years where his flameworking skills easily translated into glass blowing and crafting skills. The combination of his love for art and music have fueled his love for creating these glass products.
