Sometimes life brings you around full circle. While teaching graphic/technology at a local college, I tried to inspire my students to be sensitive to the complex environmental issues Glacier Glass.” I am proud to be a part of a creative team that embodies these same principles. It took our team many hours of creative collaboration, pushing our technical skills, finding new marketing strategies and a great deal of determination to get us to this prestigious event. I get to be a part of an inspiring design team; a leader in the tabletop industry, responsible for original, innovative, environmentally conscious products that are made in a small town in the United States of America! How cool is that? We hope to continue helping to elevate our industry by utilizing creative, inventive design, while being conscious of our impact to the planet. Thank you, ICON, for the acknowledgement and validation of our efforts.
