These pipes are made on a 1/8" steel mandrel from solid color borosilicate rods, with a technique similar to making hollow beads; using coil potting rather than being blown from tubing. Made with Glass Alchemy, Momka, and Northstar colors, with fine silver and 18k gold fuming on assorted pieces, which creates a bright metallic sheen and subtly enhances the underlying colors.
The bowls are cold-worked for consistent, functional shape and hole size, then flame polished and annealed in a digitally controlled kiln. Lengths range from 2" to 4.5"
Please contact me for more detailed information.
Thank you for looking!

2012 Assorted Work

2012 Assorted Work

After nine years of lampworking, I have finally started working with tubing and making pipes. It has been very exciting to learn new skills at the torch, challenge myself, and venture out to onto the learning-ledge again.
Thank you for looking!

Liquid Sand - Borosilicate Glass Beads

Liquid Sand - Borosilicate Glass Beads

These beads are made with Glass Alchemy, Momka, Northstar, and Borostix(in the murrini). They are made on a 1/8" mandrel, mostly encased with clear, and many contain my original abstract floral murrini. I have been making beads since 2004. Thanks for taking a look!
