After the Oregon wildfires swept through local communities, some homeowners in Lincoln City are going back to nothing but ashes, resembling a life of what was, but one local artist is aiming to memorialize those ashes in a unique way. 

 

Kelly Howard, an in-house glass artist and co-owner of Lincoln City Glass, is taking the ashes from community members' homes and spinning them into a glass blown phoenix, a symbolic creature known to “rise from the ashes”. 

 

Howard, along with many other local artists, plan to donate their art, and start a campaign on indiegogo.com to help their neighbors rebuild their lives. 

 

The date of the launch is still to be determined, but to stay up to date on all the details, click here.
