ARTIST STATEMENT

Fire & Light Originals was formed in 1995 as a partnership between the Arcata Community Recycling Center in Humboldt County, California, and a group of local investors who wanted to develop an innovative plan for using crushed, recycled glass. They decided to turn their recycled glass into a raw material and manufactured distinctive products for sale in and out of the immediate area. After careful consideration, the group decided upon a line of colored glass dinnerware which has been created by melting crushed glass in furnaces, adding pigment, and pressing the molten glass into bowls, plates, and glasses. John and Natali McClurg purchased the company in 1999 and, with a team of 20 people, they continue to make the beautiful dinnerware and giftware.
