Mask Glass Magic by John Burridge

Writers of the Future XXIII

When Michelle's drug-paraphernalia-dealing bosses get jailed, along with her glass-blowing supplies, she's caught between a rock and a hard place. Many of the Oregon glass businesses were hit, leaving a lot of employees seeking jobs. A friend, Susan, reluctantly recommends Harrington's, which has the most exquisite jewelry that Michelle has seen. Although the owner is a bit odd--he spins a bowl which gives him mysterious symbols that satisfy him that he should give her the job--she wants to study under the man. However, the man hides or masks who he truly is and asks her to wear it, if she wants to use his knowledge.

Inventive fantasy.
