Artist reflects on his craft

His earliest influences of neon art were marquees at The Ritz Theatre and Tiffin Drive In, neon artist and Tiffin native Michael Flechtner told an audience Wednesday evening at Tiffin University.
Flechtner, a 1970 graduate of Columbian High School who now lives in Van Nuys, Calif., is the designer of the U.S. Postal Service "Celebrate" stamp.
He discussed how he creates his neon work, the first of which he designed in 1980, although he did not bend the glass himself at the time.
