If you need a great gift, then you should consider Hand Blown Glass Art professional made by Lille Glassblowers. Lille Glassblowers has been creating one of a kind blown glass art in Smyrna Georgia in their glassblowing shop. Lillie Glassblowers is a family runs business, with the father Don Lillie managing the daily operations, and of course creating some beautiful works of art in his spare time. Thom Lillie is the limitless son whose talents for creating striking glass designs are always evident in his projects. Thom is a workaholic who is regularly at the studio rushing out an order, but he still manages to create some glass artwork whose elegance is beyond description. Any regular day will see Thom running around trying to finish an order, or perhaps just conversing with anybody who wanders into his studio. Often, it is quite crazy in the studio. Blowtorches blaze as Don Lillie and Thom rush around to finish an order for a client. Thom and Don have always made such gorgeous works on art that anybody would be product to own. I walked into the Lille studio one day and saw Don Lille speaking with the fire marshal of Smyrna. I got near Don and the fire marshal, and overheard them talking about ideas for an award for one of the fire fighters at the Smyrna station up the road. The fire marshal and Don finally decide on an award that captures the essence of a brave firefighter, which was a fire axe. Making glass blown art is a challenge, when you must make sure to keep it beautiful, and keep you clients happy.
