Diablo Glass School

Flameworking

Flameworking is a technique that uses a bench mounted oxygen gas torch to heat rods and tubes of glass. The heated molten glass can be blown and shaped with tools.

While similar to furnace glassblowing, flameworking allows for a higher level of detail. Many kinds of objects can be created including marbles, sculptural pieces, beads and other kinds of jewelry.
