About the Artist

I'm excited to finally be able to announce some big news.

 

 My Christmas ornaments will be featured in the 2020 Lifetime Christmas movie "The Christmas Edition" that will be released on 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. 

Mike Hurst is an Ogden, Utah based lampworker who specializes in pendants, marbles Christmas Ornaments and more. He began working with glass in January of 1994. Since that time he has passionately studied and practiced the art, always striving to perfect his techniques and learn something new. In addition to lampworking, Mike has experience with glass fusing, glass etching and neon sign making.

 

Mike’s work is inspired by nature’s beauty, pop culture, the strange and macabre. Halloween and Christmas are his favorite holidays, which is noticeable in his work. His Christmas ornaments and evil eye jewelry have become some of his most popular items and his signature pieces. 

 

Mike has been featured in Glassline magazine and several local publications. He and his work will be featured in the 2020 Lifetime Christmas movie "The Christmas Edition" starring Marie Osmond, Carly Hughes, Rob Mayes and Aloma Wright. He sells his work online, locally at The Local Artisan Collective (2371 Kiesel Ave Ogden, UT), at galleries and arts festivals.
