New Orleans artist and lampworker Andrew Jackson Pollack has been teaching at the New Orleans School of Glassworks and Printmaking Studio for the past 12 years. Jennifer Umphress has a talent for capturing oceanic movement in her glass creations, emulating the movement of sea life in a simple contemporary form. Umphress was born and raised in California, though upon a visit to Hawaii in 1991, falling in love with its beauty, decided to make it her home.
