Joan and Al Hiebert honed their glass skills while teaching and bringing up two sons. Joan began with an interest in stained glass, and as techniques progressed, to mosaics, fusing, slumping, sandblasting, painting, lampworking, blowing and sculpting.
Al’s technical background has lead to an interest in functional pieces such as lampshades and custom glass pieces including awards and specialty gifts. They retired and work/play in their multi-purpose studio at Shields townsite on Blackstrap Lake.
