Drinking Straws

I was part of the 2020 Lifetime Christmas movie "The Christmas Edition" that premiered on Lifetime November 15th, 2020. The movie features Carly Hughes, Rob Mayes, Marie Osmond and Aloma Wright.

I did the glassblowing in the film and was a double to musician / actor Rob Mayes in a few scenes. A lot of my work, mainly ornaments, are featured prominently in some of the scenes. The version of the Snowman ornament I sell is the same as featured in the movie, although my bulbs, icicles and other items were featured as well. 

It is available for straming on Lifetime on demand. It can be rented and purchased on Amazon as well. 

The best way to keep plastic straws out of landfills is not to use them — whether you’re at home or in a restaurant. If you’d like to use a straw, there are other nonplastic alternatives. I've used paper and metal straws in addition to plastic and glass. Paper straws go soggy. Metal can leave a metallic taste in your mouth which some people dislike. My glass straws are hypoallergenic, taste free and are eviromentally friendly. They are made of borosilicate class. The same thing as Pyrex dishes. They are dishwasher safe, heat and cold resistant and if cared for the same way as any other glass drinkware, very durable.
