    Tutorial: Making a Ripple Vase
    Making a "Ripple" Vase     by Madeline Rile Smith
        My favorite process on the torch is working with tubing to create hollow sculptures. I love the challenge and intimacy of working with a thin wall and shaping the medium with my breath. I usually make organic sculptures, called Arthropods, that are otherworldly exoskeletal forms with a menacing, yet delicate, quality. The rest of the time I like to create functional objects like blown vessels and cups, and pieces such as the ripple vases in this tutorial.
        The act of focusing on the clean form of a utilitarian object clears my head and gives me satisfaction. It’s a refreshing process that clears up my way of thinking. I like to make these vases for demos because they are technically informative, yet there are many ways of improvising on them. These vases can be made on any scale; this tutorial uses a miniature size. One focus is adding texture to a hollow form by visualizing the torch flame as a “line” of heat ...

    Tutorial: Fillacello Pendant Tutorial
    Fillacello Pendant Tutorial     by Alison Secor
        One particular technique that always intrigued me was fillacellos. The art of drawing lines on the side of a tube and flipping it into a pattern is mesmerizing. I have been using fillacellos in my work for a couple of years now, by adding them as caps on the bottom of rigs or incorporating them as sections in my larger pieces and collaborations. This tutorial explains how to make a fillacello pendant ...

    Tutorial: Tutorial for Making a Hollow Bead with a Hole on the Side
    Tutorial for Making a Hollow Bead with a Hole on the Side     by Ikuyo Yamanaka
        I made lampwork accessories with silver, tableware, art objects with Boro glass, and glass beads with soft glass. In 1978, I began participating in exhibitions, both group and solo, and in 1992, I went to the Pilchuk Glass School in Stanwood, Washington, USA. For the last 15 years, I have been concentrating on making beads with soft glass. I have been living in the Greater Vancouver area for the those 15 years, where I have my own studio and enjoy making my beads every day. I sell my beads to customers around the world. Lately, I have started making and selling tutorials about some of my techniques for how to make murrini.
        Even after all these years, I still find glass a fascinating medium to work with because it offers limitless possibilities and continually stimulates my creativity ...

    Tutorial: Honeycomb Disc Pendant
    Honeycomb Disc Pendant     by Frank Fleischer
        I am a scientific glassblower at a university half the week where we make and repair scientific apparatuses. The other half of the week, I work in my studio at home. I live in northern Germany with my girlfriend and my two kids. I came across borosilicate glass art before my education as a scientific glassblower. A website that displayed all kinds of functional and non-functional glass art caught my attention and slowly I went down the rabbit hole...

    Tutorial: Mixing Double Helix Color on the Hot Head Torch & Petal Application for Compression Flowers
    Mixing Double Helix Color on the Hot Head Torch & Petal Application for Compression Flowers     by Michael Crandall
        I found that I enjoyed the process for compressions the most, and decided to focus on making flowers. Not long after the process “clicked” for me, I discovered Double Helix Color. A bit of research brought me to reduction glasses and the great effects that can be achieved with the natural reduction flame of the Hot Head torch. I began experimenting with the colors, first seeing what each would do on their own and then combining the colors to create new effects.
        It was when I was showing my two-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Madeline, one of Daddy’s marbles, that I realized something about it was different. She sat transfixed, unable to look away. As I was turning it over for her to see, she kept giggling and telling me how pretty it was. I agreed, and knew I was onto something special. That something special is one of two Double Helix color combinations that I have fallen in love with, and would like to share with you ...
