Ania Kyte's Profile
~ Welcome to TurtleBeads Studio! My name is Ania, and I am an artglass lampwork artisan. I create glass beads in my bright little glass studio in Canada. I am inspired by the amazing range of artglass colours, which I transform into beads in the torch flame, making tiny sculptures such as turtles, teapots, florals, icicles, and hollow vessels.
~ I love exploring the properties of artglass, creating colourful flamework beads individually and annealing them in a kiln. I incorporate my beads into jewellery designs.
~ I also teach the art of making lampwork beads in private classes for both beginner and intermediate glass artists (See website for info: www.turtlebeads.com).
Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy my virtual studio ;)
