Flamework fancy

Gayle img_20161113_103043joined me today to try out making flamework beads – glass beads made using a hot head torch. We went through various stages, from making a basic donut shaped bead, to pulling stringer, shaping and even trying out the bead presses. Gayle took to the techniques straight away, I can’t wait to see her beads once they come out of the kiln.img_20161113_115934
