Hello.  I'm glad you're here.   

My name is Jami Ober Gan and I was raised in Tucson, Arizona. I attended the University of Arizona, graduating in 1981 with a Master’s Degree in Deaf Education. After teaching or consulting in Phoenix, Las Vegas and Tucson for 26 years, I retired and became more involved in community organizations and volunteer opportunities. I love Tucson and enjoy the inspiration and comfort that the southwest desert landscape and Arizona sunsets provide.

 

After I retired, I enrolled in pottery classes and, after a few years, became interested in working with glass, specifically fusing and slumping. Both of these outlets provided me with opportunities to play creatively. Little did I know that what started as hobbies would become passions that would one day lead to a business endeavor.

While clay and glass are very different mediums and require different creative processes, I find them both to be wonderfully therapeutic, each in its own way.
