About Us

Jennifer Balletto

Meet Jennifer, the owner of this creative business. She is an experienced art teacher with a B.S. in Design from UC Davis. During her education in Davis, she leanred to blow glass and fused glass. Jennifer studied graphics in school, but it was fused glass which peaked her interest.

After college Jennifer spent the next seven years educating herself in fused glass by taking many classes from world-famous glass artist and attending glass conventions.

By day she was a graphic artist, by night she would create fused glass in her garage studio. While working by day, as a graphic artist, Jen began teaching fused glass classes in a pottery store to people who love the medium as much as her.

Seven years later, she purchased the pottery business and melded the two businesses together to become, Glassfusion and Pottery Too!

Sam

Hi my names Sam! I am currently a senior at Cardinal Newman High School, and will be studying architecture at the University of Oregon next year! When I’m not in the studio or working hard in school, I am usually drawing, painting, searching for new music to add to my playlists, or spending time with my friends.

DeBi

I’m DeBi Tucker and when I’m not busy being a mom and wife, I’m creating. Whether it’s the new window display for the store, painting samples or working on my own art, the creativity is in constant motion.

Katie

Hi I’m Katie! I’m the current manager of the shop, an art crazed aspiring art teacher, and an animal lover! I graduated SSU with a Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art and I’m now working on earning a Credential to become a K-12 Art Teacher. When I’m in the studio I’m a pottery guru and glass enthusiast here to help your ideas come to life. When I’m out of the studio, you can find me studying, teaching, hiking, and my favorite thing – creating art!

Zoe

Meet Zoe, our shop dog. Zoe thinks the two, soft peacock-colored chairs are for her to sleep in. If she’s not resting in a chair, she will be in our party room sleeping in her bed and come out to greet you.

Occasionally she will escape just outside the shop to find out if there are any ice-cream cones or spills she can eat along the sidewalk.
