I'm N8, a 30-something y/o glass artist residing in beautiful Colorado. I started lampworking in 2002 and while I'm primarily self-taught, I did receive plenty of help along the way from a few good friends and the GLDG forum. Glassblowing has taken me all around our beautiful country while providing many great experiences and lifelong friendships - I wouldn't trade it for anything. The artwork shown here is not for sale and I'm not currently taking any custom requests while I pursue my own creative vision.
Darby, 2BA and a few others had a hand in the development of the Alien Technology concept, and now Northstar is producing a crucible pulled version of it (which can be seen in the first sherlock in this gallery).

Alien Technology Jjmfh: so i called NS and found that alien technology tubing is something they don't normaly make, and may or may not put into production. haha the hunt begins! any ideas where i could find a piece of Alien Technology tubing????

... N8: Whoops, sorry for misleading you. I wasn't sure if it was gonna be a regular production item or not. Abe of NS pulled some at the Colorado Project last July and that's when I got my stash. Glasscraft had some odds of the tubing recently, but I'm pretty sure they're gone by now. Good luck though - if you find it, you will be rewarded!
