About

Lampwork is a type of glasswork in which a torch is primarily used to melt the glass.

The glass begins as a rod the about the width of a pencil and length of a ruler.

Once in a molten state, the glass can be shaped with tools and hand movements, and gravity.

As the modern practice no longer uses oil-fueled lamps, it is also referred to as flameworking or torchworking.

The color choices are endless and so are the possibilities of the finished piece.
