GLASS CHANDELIERS, GARDEN TOOLS, WESTERN SADDLES | Host Jill Wagner travels the country on a quest to find talented craftsmen who still make incredible items by hand. At her first stop in Scottsdale, Arizona, she meets Newt Grover, who taught himself to blow glass at 40. His beautiful, larger-than-life chandeliers prove it’s never too late to become a master. Next, she meets Bob Denman in Boring, Oregon, who is one of the last craftsmen in the world making hand-forged iron garden tools. Finally, in Marysville, California, Jill meets a leather working contradiction in terms: he’s a Frenchman, named Pedro Pedrini, who carves incredible Western saddles.
