Cathi Milligan started her art career in the field of graphic design before discovering glass. Glass has since become pretty much all she thinks about. Her glass experience spans over 22 years, mastering techniques such as torch working, kiln forming, mosaic, and now adding glass blowing. This experience has afforded her many opportunities such as television appearances demonstrating torch work and kiln forming, as well as macramé, writing a book (on macramé), and some public art commissions. Cathi creates most of her work in her Highland Park store, The Glass Studio.

Since making the move down York Blvd. to the new location, The Glass Studio has been able to grow and provide more classes, especially traditional glass blowing. Teaching this as well as other Glass Studio classes, is Zoe Topsfield. Zoe is our primary glass blowing instructor with over 5 years of glass blowing experience, in her almost 15 years of glass work. You could even count her first glass studies at the age of 12, enameling jewelry back in her home of England. If you want to learn more about Zoe check out her web page, zoetopsfieldglass.com.
