…my life has just been kind of one of chance, in many respects. Getting into glass, using glass, has been a chance. It was by chance that I went to the University of Wisconsin. It was by chance my first class was in ceramics and that Harvey Littleton was just organizing the students to blow glass. It was by chance that that job became available at the University of California my last year as I graduated from school, and then I moved to California. It was that chance of – I didn’t look very hard for a job; well, there weren’t any jobs at that time. And that – my chance – being a young professor at the university, opened me up, opened my eyes up to a lot of things. It was – it’s a chance that I had great opportunities to travel. I began by making those opportunities a little bit, but then I started being invited to a number of places. And that – I feel that’s somewhat chance, too, that I didn’t plan these events. Being involved with the Glass Arts Society and all the glass – the studio glass movement is all part of that chance, too.
