Skytree Smith was introduced to glass in 2005 and was immediately taken with its endless possibilities. Having had no formal training, she apprenticed with Doug Scott, and continues to learn her craft by assisting various glass artists, and experimenting with different techniques. Skytree is in awe of the planet she lives on, and this is reflected in much of her work; it's organic and often reflects the four elements.

Skytree is a licensed Funeral Director who is passionate about both caring for the deceased and blowing glass, so it is natural for her to combine the two. She believes that, "everyone is beautiful when they are alive; there is no reason why they cannot be beautiful after death too". A main focus of her work is incorporating cremated remains into glass designs where they are seen, and not hidden away.
