Wauhatchie Glassworks is the culmination and ongoing result of incessant dreaming, thinking, and working. It is the studio of Prentice Hicks.
First and foremost, WAWhatchee, pronounced as we non-indigenous people pronounce it, is the name of a Cherokee chief who fought in the war of 1812 and lived 4 miles from where the studio is today. Chief Wauhatchie had the rail siding through this area named for him and then in 1863 the location became quite fertile and toxic with the blood and lead of thousands of Americans from the South and North.
Fire and Light
Fire & Light hand-poured colored glass tableware has a way of drawing the eye, enchanting the viewer with the unique play of light that filters through its rich spectrum of colors and textures. This enchantment is not simply a quality of the glass or its pigmentation, but of the very way in which it is made, the very hands that pour and press it, the beliefs and spirit that drive the people who craft the product, and the community from which it originates.
Living in the Shenandoah Valley, Lisa is able to enjoy blowing glass, painting and drawing, gardening, kayaking, wine tasting and hiking. She travels extensively selling her hand blown glass at Fine Art Festivals around the country.
Thomas Spake Studios strives to create blown glass that is unique and contemporary. Texture, color, pattern, light, and motion are all key design elements that run freely through all of the Work produced, these ideas are at the core of creative process. The earth, air, and sea are the inspiration behind the Work, from the sandy ocean floor, to the arid desserts of the American southwest, from the peaks of the Rockies to the distant horizon. I am a curious observer, a witness to what takes place around me, so explore through my eyes.

Glass artist Loretta Eby finds inspiration in the oddest of places. Her idea of a good time is finding a new junkyard or farm equipment salvage lot: “It’s way more fun than mall shopping.” In places such as those, she finds “art parts,” shapes, textures, and even discarded tools that are assembled into striking combinations with her glass.
Loretta Eby received her B.F.A. in glass, with minors in printmaking and drawing, from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1981. She has continued her education at the Penland School of Crafts, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and the Pilchuck School of Glass. Her emphasis since college has been on hot glass, working in and managing several studios before opening her own studio in 1985.

Jill Henrietta Davis is the owner and designer of Henrietta Glass. In 1988, after experimenting with many different materials and art forms, she was first exposed to the wonders of molten glass and immediately fell under its spell. Sixteen years, a BFA and an MFA later, she remains as smitten as ever. Glass can do things that would be impossible with any other material, and although the learning process is quite difficult, once you gain a little fluency, blowing glass is just plain fun. Jill tries to convey this fun by blending humor with fine craftsmanship in her designs.
