From Our Editors
Glass n Fire owner Ron Murphy has followed a lifetime fascination with glass sculpture by crafting models of animals and teaching students the fine art of molten manipulation for more than four decades. Along with sons Burt and Keith, Ron specializes in replicating the untamed colors and graceful movements of aquatic creatures including sea turtles, octopi, and Atlantis's figure skaters. In order to hone in on details such as the eye of an octopus or the crest of a seahorse, the family ventured to Ecuador, where they spent five years perfecting original jewelry and sculpture designs. During classes, the master wildlife sculptor and his lifetime-trained instructors teach glass-sculpting essentials and lead students through the steps to create works of art, which they can take home to display on bureaus or lay by windows to thwart barefoot burglars.
