Jeff McKinley began blowing glass as a hobby. That hobby has turned into a full time career. He trained at Scientific Glass for two years. Jeff was an artist-in-residence at Epcot Center and a guest artist for a year at Walt Disney World. Using a blowtorch, Jeff creates his Christmas ornaments as well as oil lamps, beads, marbles and other items.
A twelve-minute ornament may take three years of practice.
