  • Zen Glass Studios
    Much like professional skydivers, wily coyotes, and other careers that involve a degree of danger, most professional glassblowers aren’t self-taught. Joshua Poll, however, learned to harness the glass furnace all by himself, today imparting more than a decade of self-taught experience to Zen Glass Studios, where he and fellow glass smith David Walker create custom works of art by hand. Together they shape glass into authentic and unique pieces, including custom glassware and jewelry to wear while meeting a spouse’s goldfish for the first time. Within their studio, Joshua and David teach workshops and classes, during which students survey basic to advanced glass-blowing techniques, crafting their own handmade objects such as ornaments, beer glasses, and vases. The duo also runs a full glassblower training program, which follows a syllabus structured to arm all students with all the necessary skills to set out on their own in the industry, just as Joshua did all those years ago.

  • "The Economist"
    The Economist's globe-spanning scope, comprehensive analysis, and unflinching grasp on world issues make it required reading to stay up to date on world news, politics, and business. First published in 1843, the publication still casts itself as a newspaper despite its magazine-style layout; each issue covers the main events of the week, with analysis and opinion sprinkled across its pages for good measure. A conversational tone and anonymity remain calling cards of The Economist's writers, keeping with the belief that what is written is more important than who writes it.

  • Crystal Mirage
    Brian and Rebecca Fulton are a husband-and-wife duo that decided to turn their image-making passion into a full-time job. Bring up to three buddies or fashion-forward centaurs and the two shutterbugs will capture your best side during a one-hour photo shoot. The Fultons use high-end equipment—including Canon DSLRs and an Elinchrom portable lighting system—to slice meaty moments out of reality's carcass and grill them into images of the highest possible caliber. Along with a full array of online and digital copies, you can also adorn office desks and sleeping in-laws with good old-fashioned prints of your favorite shots. Pricing for prints varies by image size; use your $50 photo credit for a 4''x6'' ($3.95), 5''x7'' ($9.95), 8''x10'' ($19.95), 11''x14'' ($45.95), or four wallet-sized portraits ($9.95). RBF Photography dispenses prints with matte or glossy finishes.

  • Charlie Parker Pottery Tampa
    Charlie Parker set his clay career spinning in 1967 at age 14 when he worked as a part-time clay-mixer at Minnesota Clay Company.
