Becker Art Glass/ Facebook

Doug Becker loves creating things from blown glass.

And there's no ego here; he's anxious to share the experience with anyone who wants to learn.  That prompted this post to his Facebook page:

Doug has the patience of a saint! 12 women on a mystery trip stop to make roses!

Our week-long showcase of artists at this year's Park Point Art Fair kicks off with award-winning glass artist Douglas Becker.  He talks about how quickly you can learn what not to do when dealing with hot glass ... and how "trial-and-error" might better be called "trial-and-learn."
