Min Fidler's Profile
I have great fun melting small amounts of glass onto a mandrel, when I remove the mandrel there is a hole all the way through the glass - magic. Well, not actual magic, but definitely a bonus, because I don't really set out to make beads for jewellery. I used to, but actually, it's so fascinating to melt glass, experiment with colours, reactions and shapes, that the resultant components for jewellery are incidental. Fortunately there are people out there who make lovely things with my work, they have vision that I do not always have.
I make a lot of cat beads, people like them, but I LOVE making them, and that's the only reason that I do it. If I don't enjoy it, it becomes stressful, for me melting glass must be a resting place to be successful.
