About

My love of glass started back in 2009. Beginning with a small hobby torch I built my studio up to what it is today.

My glass work is influenced mostly by geekery and fandoms though my love for marine life is also a very big part of my work (especially my love for jellyfish.)

I work almost exclusively off mandrel in borosilicate glass. Though occasionally I do create some pieces from soda lime glass and sometimes I can even be found making beads!

For those of you interested in the science, borosilicate glass is the type of glass that is used in scientific applications, it is also the same type as the original Pyrex glass kitchen wear. Borosilicate glass colours are also more saturated making it more suitable for my style of work that involves using small amounts of colour within a clear lens.
Soda lime glass is perhaps the most prevalent glass, used in fusing, furnace blown glass and for common items such as wine bottles and jam jars.

All glass is fully kiln annealed to ensure the durable qualities of the glass so you can wear or display your glass every day with the same pride and excitement as when it arrived.

Gilson opals are the only opals that can be used inside glass the ones I use come from industry leader profound glass.
The opals have play-of-colour which is an optical effect resulting in flashes of coloured light. This makes them especially beautiful when worn in the sunlight or under various different lights.

Historically opals are considered to bring good luck they are also Octobers birthstone.

Dichroic glass is made with micro layers of metals or oxides (gold, silver, titanium, chromium) between layers of glass. The result is a glass that the colours shift inside as the viewing angle differs. The different metals and oxides produces different colours and tones.

    Hi there, I'm Scarlet and I'm the one doing everything round here (except making the tea, I've got a husband to do that.) I'm a bit of a geek, ok a lot of one. I know Han shot first. I occasionally cosplay and I love jellyfish (I have them as pets)
