TORCH DRAWN PAPERWEIGHTS

These pieces are made using a different set of techniques than the encased paperweights. They are made with a combination of traditional glassblowing techniques as well as surface design techniques which incorporate lampworking and murrini techniques. I use a torch and rods of colored glass to draw the designs on the exterior of the glass while hot, then the designs are cased over with more layers of clear glass and more layers of design.
