All of my work starts with a molten gather of clear crystal glass out of my furnace. Next I apply the color using a layering technique to add depth and dimension, sometimes I use a pipe with a little bit of molten colored glass on the tip like a paintbrush to draw in branch like designs. To finish off most off most pieces I apply goldstone or even 24k gold to finalize my three dimensional look.Then I blow and shape my piece into the pre determined shape using various hand tools and wet newspaper. Finally when the piece is finished I delicately apply a small drip of water to separate my piece from the blow pipe and place it in a cooling oven for 10-12 hours. Once cooled the piece gets the bottom ground with diamond wheels then polished and signed.
