Glassy Mermaid: Story behind the glass

Glassy Mermaid  is an etsy shop I started to support and sell my own glass art and the work of Steven Tillman aka Jellyfish or Jfish glass. Jellyfish and I met at Sonic Bloom music festival in Georgetown, Colorado in June 2013. Jellyfish attended the festival this year as a member of The Colorado Project, a non-profit community that brings glass artist together for a greater cause. He has worked extensively putting on live glassblowing events for the past three years. At the event, he and many other glassblowers from all over Colorado joined forces and did live glassblowing demos for all festival attendees. Jellyfish is father of two and has been blowing glass in northern Colorado for 10 years. His work is inspired by earth, space, and underwater creatures. Steven is well-known for using multimedia elements in his jewelry such as, electroformed copper, sterling and fine silver, crystals, minerals, and tektites. When we met the opportunity to learn to blow glass naturally presented itself. This opportunity and our meeting appeared rather magically, and had an energy of divine intervention. Although my glassblowing career has just begun, glass art has always been close to my heart. My uncle’s company Austin Thin Films is one of the largest Dichroic Glass manufactures in the states. Prior to meeting Jellyfish, I worked as a social media manager at a chain of glass galleries in Colorado called Myxed Up Creations. After working behind the scenes in the glass industry, as well as, on my degree in Events Management at Johnson & Wales University in Denver, I wanted to get more involved in selling at live events. My dream of vending at live events was realized when I was offered a job as Merchandise Manager with Bus To Show. Jellyfish and I have since been working together selling Glassy Mermaid glass, Olmec Apparel Clothing, and other Bus To Show community integrated products at our merchandise table. We are willing to set up our table at any event in need of vendors that presents a profitable opportunity. Our eyes our open to the rainbow of possibilities available in the glass and live event industry. We love to collab with other artist and share our art with the world!
