Green glass ornament by glassblower Michael Allison in his studio for The Creative Push

I recently met with glassblower and mixed media artist Michael Allison in Joelton, Tennessee at his studio to interview him for The Creative Push artist interview series. Not only is he a professional glass artist but he also creates beautiful jewelry, and other mixed media works with metal and wood. These are the images I was able to capture in the short time I had while doing our interview.
