Recognized for his beautiful blown glass lighting, Philip Jacobs blows glass before customers in his on-site studio, creating hand blown glass lighting as well as additional blown glass objects.  Located in North Conway NH, Earth & Fire is a combined glassblowing studio and gallery. Philip Jacobs and his wife Karissa Masse Jacobs (potter and gallery manager) established the original Earth & Fire Studio Gallery in 2000.  In 2006, the same year their son was born, they undertook a new enterprise, and purchased the League of NH Craftsmen Gallery, a 75 year old fine craft gallery in North Conway.  The two galleries now coexist in the same building, offering customers the opportunity to witness the creation of some of the beautiful works on display.
