John Fields became fascinated with glass in the early 1970’s while studying business at the University of Arkansas. “I took a stained glass course to alleviate some of the boredom. I made a sun catcher and was hooked.” On his own, John studied the work of Louis Comfort Tiffany and fabricated reproduction stained glass windows and lamps for a growing following. Realizing that his future lay in an art form over 2000 years old, John took a glassblowing class at Pratt in Seattle.

Heather graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of the Arts in 1986. “I wandered into the glassblowing studio one day and there was no turning back. I was fascinated with molten glass.” After graduating, Heather worked at the Jamestown Glass House in Colonial National Historical Park, demonstrating off-hand glass blowing to park visitors.

Heather and John met in Portland and began working together in 1995. “While assisting John, I had a chance to develop my own body of work, quite different than his. His floral landscapes and motifs are influenced by his admiration of Tiffany and long time immersion in stained glass. I also draw from the natural world, but in a less literal way. I refine and reflect natural images by using organic patterns and luminous colors.”
