How it All Began
My Aunt has been a glass blower for over 30 years and every time she blows a piece there is residual glass left on the blow pipe. She thermal shocks it off and it is broken and dirty. She never wanted to send it to a landfill and so she kept it, not knowing what she would do with it.
One day she told me that I should make stuff out of it and I told her I didn't know how. She said you have a kiln....which I did, someone gave me a used kiln years ago free. But I had never plugged it in. So I went to the library and checked out a book on Kiln Formed Glass. I read it and read it over and over again.
One day my aunt asked me, if I had made anything and I told her I had read a lot on it, but was afraid to turn on my kiln. She looked and me and said, "Mary, it is like a great big toaster...just plug it in. Log your temps and times and you will figure it out."
And I did. I am constantly coming up with new ideas and designs, and I am having so much fun! I am designing my ear wires for my earrings and they are so unique and different, I am having a lot of fun with them! My nightlights have evolved over the years and now I say they are nightlights with attitude!
My husband and I were trying to come up with a name for our business and I finally said, "I think I am going to call it MOHLOM." He wondered why and I told him it was an acronym for "More of HIM, less of me". I would always sign my letters like this and he thought it was a great idea.
I have a heart for the unborn and so 10% of all my sales go to my local area Right to Life. And 50% of the profits of my cards, which are printed from my original drawings goes to them as well. I have done speaking at Christian woman conferences, Right to Life Events, Churches and StoneCroft Ministries on the Sanctity of Life. I bring my glass and after I speak then we have our glass for sale! I love sharing about what God has done in my life, His Mercy and Grace that He has showered on me and how others can also have a relationship with Jesus Christ! He will change your life!
More of HIM, less of me,
Soli Deo Gloria,
