More Description

Magic in the Mountains is the story of Kelsey Murphy, the extraordinary woman who revolutionized the creation of cameo glass. Her willingness to marry fine art to manufacturing gave her the incomparable advantage of using fourteen tanks of colorful glass as her palette. The cased blanks produced at Pilgrim Glass Corporation have never been equaled anywhere else in the world. But this is more than simply Kelsey's story. It is the story of her family and her teachers. The story of the talent and skill of those people she pulled into her wake, including fellow artist and machinist Robert Bomkamp and Pilgrim Glass Corporation CEO Alfred E. Knobler. It is the story of all the forces that gathered in Ceredo, West Virginia, the small town and its people who believed in the magic of cameo glass and possessed the resources and willpower to make it happen.
