Lucky:
I saw a Kevin O'Grady marble on display in Glasscraft, Colorado. It was a vortex marble and I was bringing somebody else in there to pick up supplies and I saw it in the case and I went, "Well, that's really cool." I thought about it for a minute and said, "I don't know how he did that" I bought $800 with a glass. I went home and started working out the vortex marbles that are in the ... now.

Cupboard:
What's your favorite style of glass, do you prefer scientific glass or art pieces?

Lucky:
Art pieces. In respect for the scientific blowers, I really like the sculpture pieces and just the flow of the glass in working with it and having to go in the new parameters in more organic shapes. The favorite piece that I made, and I'm pretty happy with, is did a double bubbler motorcycle where the front wheel and the handle bars, which is the first chamber with the ball in it, and then the gas tank and the engine is the second chamber with two side pipes coming off of it. It's about 17 pieces total. It takes me about two days to make it.

I started out with making a bonsai tree, like having a Sherlock pipe, or something, with branches coming off in the leaves and like some doves sitting in the branches and stuff like that, that I've been really happy with coming out.

Cupboard:
If you could collaborate with anyone with any other glassblowers, who would that be with?

Lucky:
Snodgrass would be fun. I like working with a lot of different artist that I teach. I have several students. I'm not familiar with a lot of the other artist because I'm busy doing my thing. I can't say that there's an artist around that I'm tight with that I would know. I have some friends out in California, humble county glass in in Arizona that we've been working with that I do some collaboration pieces with.

I've been looking forward to do with some collaboration with some of our Ohio glassblowers.
