Michelle Kaptur is a glass artist outside Bend who started blowing glass in 1975. She designs and creates unique glass memorial pieces, called Soulbursts, that incorporate ashes from a deceased family member or pet. We watch her work with her studio assistant, Mark Gordon, to design and create a Soulburst. A client arrives to pick up a finished piece.
