Tom and Sage Holland

Holland_1Tom and Sage Holland are two of a handful of early American Glass Bead Makers who have been working with the medium since the late 1980’s. Sage began on the west coast of Washington state, while Tom got his start here in Arkansas. They met at an international Bead conference in Washington D.C. and eventually, after continuing to run into each other at other exhibits around the country, decided to join studios and get hitched.

Ever since then they’ve been trying to balance working on their art, teaching workshops, writing on glass bead history, building a house, farming, and being a part of the community at Mountain View.

Tom and Sage have taught workshops all over the world: on the Italian Island of Murano, in Hamburg, and Istanbul, as well as several here in the states. They enjoy the excitement of travel to new places but they feel their schedule is empty without quality time at home.

They look forward to being part of the tour this year and seeing those friends they’ve made there in the past.
