In Light of Fire

Formed in 1995 as a partnership between the Arcata Community Recycling Center in Humboldt County, and a group of local investors who wanted to develop an innovative plan for using crushed, recycled glass, Fire & Light founders decided to turn their recycled glass into a raw material, manufacturing distinctive products for sale in and out of the immediate area. After careful consideration, the group decided upon a distinctive line of colored glass dinnerware, which would be created by melting crushed glass in furnaces, adding pigment and pressing the molten glass into bowls, plates and glasses. In December 1995, the first glass products were poured and pressed from the Fire & Light furnaces.

John and Natali McClurg purchased the company in 1999. Together with a team of 20 people, Fire & Light Originals is handcrafting the beautiful giftware and colored glass dinnerware that is now shipped to specialty stores and galleries throughout the country, including Enjoy the Store Redding.

Enjoy the Store sells a variety of Fire & Lights products, including plates, bowls, vases, glasses, tumblers, goblets, tea lights, candle holders, soap dishes and more.
