The name is Mike Ybarra, and I have been blowing glass since October of 2017! I was born in Long Beach, CA and was raised all over the south west of the states between SoCal, Arizona and Nevada. I’ve been a guitarist for more than half of my life and am an avid metal head, which is where my name "Shredz" comes from! My style of glass art is in the “Chaos” and “Space Tech” style of glass art which is exactly what I had envisioned in my head and where my creative train of thought always leads me. I’m so thankful for the people that I have met and continue to meet, and I’m absolutely humbled to be apart of this community and have a new place that I can express myself!
