About Me

My Background

As an artist, I have always been drawn to the details, the intricate embellishments and visual appeal. When introduced to lampwork, the melting of glass in a torch to create a detail rich single bead, I knew I had found my art match. And I get to use fire? Perfect!

Lampwork bead design has a steep learning curve of many years. The work is focused and fast. The glass becomes liquid in the super hot flame. The process requires a lot of twisting and spinning to create a smooth round bead shape, otherwise the glass will drip or become an unbalanced bead. The glass rods are in a myriad of colors to  inspire each day at the torch. I tend to work with 3-5 colors at a time. By limiting my palette I can concentrate on the pattern I'm designing.
