THE QUEST CONTINUES LLC - ART GLASS BEADS & SCULPTURES & ART GLASS JEWELRY By Faith Davis Ferris
My thanks to everyone who continues to patiently wait for new studio work. The time will come, but right now it's still just too difficult to stand behind the torches. Thank you SO much to those who've emailed, texted or written to check on me. I will without doubt carry on the work that my father and I loved together and that I love still. The torches will glow again, the legacy of torchworking glass he passed to me will continue & tho I've shrouded many of the website pages for now they will return, they will...
For those who may not have yet heard, it breaks my heart (daily) to say that my father/teacher/mentor/friend/fellow lampworker extrodinaire David Davis passed away October of 2014. There is simply no way to capture the depth of the loss to those of you who knew him via glass, to myself as his lifelong apprentice or to the glassworking community as a whole that he so loved.
I'm sharing the link to his obituary and the link for personal comments, if you like. If you have a memory, comment, picture to share, please do
If you knew my father Dave, you know he never thought of his art glass or his teaching as noteworthy or remarkable. He never sought praise or attention during his life nor after (hence at his request there was no service). But if you have a story, a picture or a thought on how he impacted your journey in glass I have no doubt he'd have been greatly pleased to have that shared. I have no doubt that even as you place it into words he will somehow know.
I am equally certain it will please him to know he made a difference and will be remembered by the difference he made.

THE QUEST CONTINUES LLC
Still, even now, tho decade upon decade has passed,
I find the song of the flame and glass calls me....
The magic of the molten flow that riveted me as a child
peering over my father's shoulder as he worked glass
behind his roaring Carlise is mine. Within the fire of
dragons I coax colored and crystalin cylinders of glass
into shape and form. Pieces with purpose, pieces of art.
Each created with the whisper of my muse, the skills
learned from my father before me. The fire, the glass,
the second generation traditional skills meld and merge
and I create.
Myth & magic, heart & soul, fire & glass,
dance within these studio walls.
Welcome to my world...
