A VIDEO SHOWING HOW I MELT GLASS MAY BE SEEN AT: http://bit.ly/1KZwX9I
The mandrel wound technique I use is an ancient technique known as Lampwork. Using a torch system I melt a variety of glasses around a steel mandrel. Each design is achieved by layering and manipulating different colors and types of glass. Often silver, gold and enamels are included in my designs.
Each glass object is then annealed in a kiln; a precise and slow process. This assures a high quality object that will not break. Each piece is handmade one at a time. Therefore no two will be exactly alike.
I am one of the Veteran Glass Beadmakers / Lampwork Artists. I have been melting glass using the lamp work technique since 1993. I am one of a handful of lucky artists that gets to do what I love and solely support myself – more or less. Thank you for supporting small business!
