Adam Yoo, aka Earth Drum, has been glassblowing artist for 18 years. In 2014, his glassblowing studio went out of business, and he became homeless. This year, Earth Drum found a new home at Community First! Village, a unique supportive housing community for the disabled and chronically homeless. Community First! has a market where residents can sell their wares, and has asked Earth Drum to make items like wine glasses and hummingbird feeders. The Austin Awesome Foundation is pleased make this possible by awarding Earth Drum a $1000 grant to purchase a new glassblowing kiln of his own.
