Local Artisan Life and art are beautifully intertwined for glass artists Larry and Barbara Domsky. Forming a powerful part- nership that transcends tradition, they visualize and craft in very different ways, yet find a compatibility that mimics the very median they create in. No matter whether fluid or organized; the Domskys are free to express in a manner that exemplifies personal inner consciousness, building a thriving business that enjoys commercial and international notoriety in the process. We asked the Domskys about their journey, why they chose glass, and how they hope to share this artistic median with others. You run a successful business that started with a very personal connec- tion. How did you two meet? In 1989, we shared the same group of mutual friends and would often find ourselves at the same gatherings. We eventually went out on our first solo date, a drive to Lake Mead, to sit by the water and talk. It was that night that Larry shared with me a vision he had of the two of us getting married and having our studio and life together. Though he may have professed his feelings right from the start, we took our time in this love story, to become the best of friends first. Today that friendship, our love every day, from morning to night. We collaborate in life and business. The vision came true and it is beautiful! and respect for one another has only grown stronger. We are together July/August 2017 59
