I have been working with glass, in many forms, since the late 1990's. I love the whole process, including stained glass, fusing and forming glass in a kiln, and lampwork, which is the art of making beads, figures and vessels with a torch.

Fused glass is the process of softening, bending and melting glass in a kiln. Each piece is fired in a kiln 1-5 times, as per the piece I am making.
Jewelry and Beads
All of my jewelry is made with my own handmade beads, a process called lampwork. They are made at a torch with rods of different color glass.
Most of my stained glass is made in the foil method.
