    Hello Jim, It was a pleasure meeting you at the craft fair held at Tom’s Farm today. I was so impressed with all of your work. I really enjoyed listening to your explanations of the processes you go through in creating a piece. I was also honored to be the first purchase of the day. I hope the rest of your day was successful and that you did not melt away in the hot Corona weather.

    I plan on exploring your site and I look forward to the day that I can come and watch you demo your craft.

    I am very pleased with the purchases we made today. Thanks again.

      Thanks Kerry. It was successful although not many people braved the 111 degree heat to come out to Tom’s Farms. We look forward to our next sales day being a little cooler!

    It would be appreciable if share some experience/skills. The pics are looking like you are doing hard to create innovative products with your techniques. Hope to see more articles on your products as I am glass collector, may be very useful to me.

    Hey Jim! This is your cousin Debi (Smith) Reynolds in Utah! I heard about your glass art in an email from Diane! Your glass is BEAUTIFUL! I also read how you got started in your quest to be an artist. It’s amazing the paths you are guided to take through inspiration! Who knew? Hope you and your family are well. Lots of love from all of us in the Smith clan!

    Hi Jim,

    Do you offer glass blowing classes for middle-school children?

  10. Jim and Joy Umstead says:

    Wow, Jim. We love looking at all your creations. You have been blessed to have this second career that is so artistic. Joy asked me if you have done anything in red. Not Orange-Red but straight red.

    • Jim Campbell says:

      Hi Jim,
      Thanks for the encouragement. I wouldn’t exactly call it a career though. I don’t have anything in a straight red now. Color is expensive and I work with what I have. The stock of red I have leans to the orange spectrum
