Why we LOVE IT!
Well, not only does it give us options and beautiful handmade beads to drool over, but even for non-lampworkers, there are fascinating features about glass which gives a great insight into the mystical world of lampworking. Entraced and curious with the tests that she makes in her studio with frit and glass, you can see why her lampwroking murrini, shards and mojo boxes have become very popular in the lampworking world!

  1. Hey! Keep it up! This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about art glass in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about art glass.
    Most antique art glass was made in factories, particularly in the UK, the United States, and Bohemia, where items were made to a standard or "pattern". This would seem contrary to the concept of art glass as distinctive and showing individual skill. However, the importance of decoration in the Victorian era in particular meant that much of the artistry lay with the decorator. Any assumption today that factory-made items were necessarily made by machine was not generally so. Up to the end of the 1930s the majority of processes involved in making decorative art glass were performed by hand.
    All of the Le Verre Francais art glass collection sold extremely well and bidding was competitive. A “Lizard” pattern vase in yellows and reds sold for $3600, while patterns like the “Rhododendron “ and “Ash Tree” brought $3120 and $2880 respectively.
