Julia and Robin share a passion for sculpture and molten glass. Ideas, techniques and an array of materials are melded together to manifest their combined surreal vision into anthropomorphic explorations. They both hold BFA’s and MFA’s and love teaching. Robin is the manager of the Chrysler Museum Glass Studio and Julia teaches glass for Virginia Wesleyan University and Tidewater Community College in Costal Virginia.
