Quote: “Honestly, the prospect of being on something characterized as ‘reality television’ was pretty nerve-racking to me. I thought, were they going to put me in a house full of drunken [people]? But you know, I was also curious about it. There had already been a little bit of preemptive critique from the glass world: How is this going to accurately or appropriately represent our community? But I think that the way I do glass is something that would be good to represent.”
