Experimenting with the torch, while
visiting a friend named Mike Siebert, himself a second generation lampglass worker, Eric
learned to make humming birds, horses and dolphins. Mikes father, Bruno
Siebert owned and operated the Glass Cabin at Inspiration Point. A fan of science
fiction and fantasy, Erics horses became unicorns and centaurs and the dolphins
became mermaids. With the development of human torsos for mermaids and centaurs,
legs soon sprouted as well as wings, upon which Erics fairies were born.
