Lampworking is an old art. Today you might have heard it called flameworking. I use a propane fueled torch to melt long, thin rods of glass into new shapes.
You can see my torch and some of my tools on the About Me page.
I specialize in sculptural beads inspired by nature and my imagination. Most of my pieces right now are dragons, jellyfish seascapes, frogs and birds, but I make all sorts of things.
When I'm not melting glass, I'm writing tutorials about it! These 'classes on paper' allow me to come right into your studio and take a seat next to you. Everything from how to encase, make sculptural bead or canes and right up to dragons or jellyfish aquariums--I don't hold anything back.
