Leah Kaczanowicz and AL Jones founded Gumball Glassworks in 2021 in Seattle, Washington. The two found a shared love of the stained glass medium and learned the craft together during the covid 19 lockdowns. Leah was no stranger to the glass world , both working and teaching as a glassblower but AL had never touched the stuff. The two continue to develop their skills and have begun selling online and at local markets after moving to Asheville, NC in June of 2022.
