Michael and Brad's Profile

About

We are Michael and Brad, the Flaming Fools!

Our one-of-a-kind glass beads are made in our loggia studio, looking out at the gardens for inspiration, using a minor torch with Italian Effetre and Moretti glasses, and Double Helix and Kugler glass.They are formed and shaped primarily with gravity and the aid of paddles with occasional use of presses.

All pieces are slowly annealed and cooled in a kiln for a minimum of 12 hours. Carefully cleaned and ready for your enjoyment.

We make individual focal beads and occasional bead sets, for use in jewelry of your own creation.

We are members of SRA, Self Representing Artists, a group of glass artists who are dedicated to the art of lampworking, an ancient art form that flourished in Italy in the 1300s…
