About Shine Grassworks, in response to the need for more healthy fresh green vegetables in our diets, we are pleased to bring you some of our favorites! Microgreens are an excellent source of important nutrition! Depending on the variety, they contain between 4 and 40 times the amount of phytonutrients, and up to 20 percent protein! They also have incredible flavour, and a super fresh, crisp and juicy texture. They are so incredible tasting that you will be instantly hooked, you have my word on it!
Ryan Lacovetsky - Glass Artist (&grass artist!)
I first tried lampworking in the fall of 1999, at Metamorphosis Glass in Union Bay, BC. Seeing the awesome work being done by the studio owner Neal Kuellmer, and other great Vancouver Island lampworkers, I became quickly obsessed with glass. I continued to travel 5 hours each way as many weekends as I could, and by the following spring, quit my job printing newspapers and moved to Union Bay to further my new obsession.
After almost 2 years of lampworking at Metamorphosis, it seemed like time to move on, travel a little, and ultimately build a studio of my own. After two summers of traveling around Western Canada with a portable glass shop in my car, I decided to set up permanently in Winnipeg, where I have built a great studio, and have an amazing family.
And now, after almost 20 years of Lampworking, and in response to the overwhelming need for us to eat better and live better, I am excited to bring you Shine Grassworks, a microgreens garden located in Winnipeg, MB, Canada. Contact us today to inquire about our currently available selection of incredible microgreens!
