CATHLAMET - Somewhat fittingly, reggae legend Bob Marley's 1973 album was called "Catch a Fire," so what better to listen to while stoking the flames of a 1,000-plus-degree oven of molten glass?

The island anthem "Stir it up" played over the speakers of Treasure Collupy's Cathlamet studio last Friday as he prepared to make a blown glass paperweight in the shape of a jelly fish. He's been sick for a week and needs to replenish his stock of items in the studio he shares with fellow glass blower Kyle Gribskov as well as fill special orders.
