Greasy Glass Fire Recovery Fund

Donation protected
Hi everyone. Myself and the crew at MELT started this go fund me to raise money to help rebuild Greasy Glass's studio. On the night of February 2nd the studio caught fire. The entire building and all of its contents burned to the ground destroying more than $250 thousand dollars in product and equipment. Also in the process of it burning, the fire caused environmental damage in which Ryan is now trying to pay to clean up. So in total it is estimated his losses will climb over 300k.  In the beginning of the video you can see the remains of what was the building where all of the magic happened. Thankfully no one was in the building was hurt by the fire but the losses have effected so many. So im reaching out to you all to donate what you can to help him, the crew, and his family which have been put through this tragic event. 

Greasy is a big part of our industry and im sure if you work in this industry you have used some of the great glass color and tubing that he and the others that work with him have produced. Then there are the collectors of some beautiful works of art that have been made with the color his team has produced.  He is a big part of what we all do everyday in our studios. So I hope you all are able to donate at least a little to help him and his family. I consider our industry a family. So lets show him and those around him some support and do what we can to show him we care. This business is how he feeds his family and is able to put a roof over his head. So relief can not come fast enough.

We will also be setting up donations of glass pieces and anything you all would like to donate to be auctioned off with all of the proceeds to going to help him rebuild what the fire took.  If you would like to auction off a piece to help and donate  money from the sale of you art work then that is greatly appreciated as well. Please contact me for details of how to handle the donations to be auctioned or sold in auction form. 

Please contact me to discuss any donations for auctions or or sales so we can handle that outside of the gofundme platform. 

Thank you all from me Paul Katherman and the entire MELT crew for taking the time to help in this time of need.
