He uses Effetre and Vetrofond glass and is known for the colors he creates from using fine silver leaf in his beads. He sells his work at bead shows around the USA and also sells from his website. Scott is the inventor and creator of the Electric Mandrel Spinner, Rolling Marver, and more great tools for lampworkers. Scott studied Landscape Design and Commuications at Washington State University.
