To love is to breath into one’s heart, and Bill and I breathe with fire

Blown Glass, Steampunk Designs and Dragon Eyes

Bill and Rae are full-time artists from Corvallis Montana. “We are science geeks to glassblowers”. They both have technical backgrounds in the high tech avionics industry but left the corporate life to live their dream.

Bill became a full-time artist and started blowing glass in 1993. Rae left the corporate world in 2002 to be with Bill and become a full-time artist/glassblower.  In 2016 Rae began incorporating metalworking, dragon attire, and Steampunk designs into their glass art. Together they live on a small farm that includes orchards, an extensive garden with a greenhouse, Steampunk shop, Torch shop for torchwork glass blowing, Bills Man Cave equipped with an electronics wing, and Brewhouse. They have a Youtube channel ~ Bill & Rae Show ~ that they post how they brew beer, make soap and life on the farm in general. 

Their farm has fantastic views overlooking the Bitterroot Valley of Montana. Together they spread love and harmony, sharing this fantastic journey called life.

Their company is Aspen Hot Glass, they specialize in blown glass hummingbird feeders, Pixie Orbs, contemporary vortex marbles, bottle stoppers, shot glasses, cabinet knob/ drawer pulls, Steampunk designs, Dragon attire,  and more. These can be purchased on either their Etsy site or their Shopify site.

They work out of their home tucked away in the heart of the Bitterroot Valley but can be found at the local Saturday farmer’s market in Hamilton Montana from May to October.
