Gin creates colorful glass- both in the hot shop and on the torch -including wine glasses and whimsical interpretations of monsters and aliens. At age 6, Gin knew she wanted to be a glass artist. Growing up in Italy, Gin was exposed to beautiful glass art when she visited the island of Murano, near Venice. While in Murano, an Italian glassmaker gave her a piece of zanfirico, a patterned glass cane that would later be an important source of inspiration in her own work.
