Robin and John were married in West Des Moines, Iowa, on March 25th, 2006. Within a year they were on the move to Winterset, Iowa, about 35 miles away. They had decided they needed more space, so they purchased the Madisonian building, a 103-year-old former newspaper building and went to work. The space is now renovated to include space for living and entertaining upstairs; classes, demonstrations and gallery space on the ground level; and a fully outfitted glass studio and multi-use work space in the basement.
John has four children from a former marriage. In January of 2009, a first grandchild was brought into the world. In December of 2011 a second, Karina, joined us. And in March of 2013 came Johnny-Cakes!
Robin and John live there in bliss with their four cats and two golden retrievers.
