What happens when a creative woman who loves God gets tons of dirty broken glass? Beauty… MOHLOM…

If you read Monday’s post, you probably noticed the photo of the lovely fused glass cross from MOHLOM. If you clicked on the photo, you found yourself at MOHLOM’s Etsy page. If you didn’t, let me tell you more, and then you should check it out for yourself!

You’re looking at the art of Mary Jackowski. If you’re wondering about the name of her business, it stands for “more of HIM, less of me,” which echoes John the Baptist’s cry in John 3:30.

If you’ve been around my Fun Fridays or Thankful Thursdays for a while, you know I like glass. Our annual trip to CMOG is one of our favorite things. I not only love MOHLOM’s glass, I love the philosophy, the heart, behind the work.

From Mary Jackowski’s Etsy profile:

The items that I make are made from recycled glass. My aunt is a glass blower and she gives me the scrap off her blow pipe, which I take and clean up. It comes broken and dirty, much like us. But I clean it up, break it, fuse it together in a kiln and it comes out bright, shiny and beautiful. Much like God does with us.

She also believes in keeping her prices low; she remembers the days of seeing a piece of jewelry she loved but could not afford.
