Lampworked & Fused elements are layered and arranged with crushed and powdered glass and pre-fused elements on a fused background to create unique pictures. This scene is a 12" disk and displays in an iron stand. It took several firings in the kiln and many hours at the torch to create. It has lots of texture.
One of a kind Lamp-Worked Beads, are hand made at my studio in Otto, North Carolina. Bead making is my favorite thing that I do. I combine the beads with gemstones and pearls into necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Beads are also sold individually to incorporate into your own jewelry designs.
Fused Glass pieces come in all shapes, sizes and uses. Much of my fused glass is framed, however I also make dishes like this 18" shallow bowl. Other items include suncatchers, Christmas ornaments, vases, coasters and dishes of all shapes and sizes.
