Owner and founding member of Muffinjaw Designs, Freddie Blache has a BFA with a concentration in Glass and secondary in Sculpting from the University of South Alabama. He discovered his passion for this medium in Fall 2013 and is inspired by the repetitious forms of nature. He loves the fluid nature of glass as it resembles the Mobile Bay area he was born and raised in.
As a founding member, Caroline Gratton has been a crucial part of Muffinjaw Designs. She began blowing glass in January 2017 during the first firing of one of our portable furnaces, Smaug. She loves that glass is more exciting, forgiving and approachable than other art forms.
