WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY...
"Michael Dickinson does such wonderful and apparently magical things with fire and glass that you may wonder why you did not choose, at thirteen, to apprentice yourself to a master craftsman in a small cabin full of tools and surrounded by fir trees, possibly in Lapland. Michael recently gave a demonstration at Stanford’s arts-themed dorm, crafting a perfect speckled white conch shell, a sphere with a trompe-l’oeil spiral uncoiling in its heart, and a wine goblet worthy of Galadriel. Our students, regardless of major, were spellbound. To watch his glass turn and bubble and be born in that cone of flame was deeply calming, a reminder of an age in which the gifted and industrious human hand—not the keyboard—mattered most.
