My lampwork artisan glass items are handmade by myself, Darrelle in my cosy little studio in South Devon, UK.
How it's made: The glass is melted until molten using a 1700° flame from a dual fuel torch. When the glass is hot and melted it acts like honey, the hotter it is the more it moves and drips. So, when the glass is acting like set honey, I can start wrapping it around a stainless-steel rod and then it's formed using both gravity and tools. Once it is complete it’s put into a kiln for several hours to bake then cooled down slowly, this is how the glass is hardened to make it durable.
