Alan Davies' Profile

About

You can look on the shop's "About" pages for a bit of autobiography. Why the name AJDA Lampwork? It's simply some letters from my name plus "lampwork", which is an ancient glassworking art primarily used for creating beads. Originally a type of oil lamp was used - hence the word. Nowadays we use sophisticated gas torches, so some people prefer the terms torchwork and flamework, but I like the link with our history. I started with lampworking, though I also work glass in other ways - eg casting, kilnforming and cold-working - as well as other materials such as silver and gold.
