David Sandidge

At age 15, David Sandidge made small glass figurines at a glass factory in Virginia Beach. As factory work was not his ambition, Sandidge went to college to study aviation. Eventually, he would come to realize that his passion for glass outweighed his desire to fly airplanes. He excelled at the factory mastering his technique and designing new products.
