The work of Craig Mitchell Smith http://www.craigmitchellsmith.com was showcased in the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. His work was displayed in Tinkerbell's butterfly garden as well as a booth on the main street of the World Showcase. Craig is relatively new to glass making art, but is already acknowledged as an innovator in the world of art class.
While the luminescent quality of the glass catches the light the beauty of the colors are breath taking. The colors of the fall leaves and the brilliance of the red flowers are beautiful as well as the technical skills to bring these pieces to life. Clusters of butterflies seem to be ready to fly away.
When Speaking to Craig he is excited to share the love of his work. He is very candid and laughs that this is an unexpected dream. His enthusiasm is infectious as he explain his hobby has become a full time endeavor, but he is happy to do what he loves full time.
