Lampworking-Beading Open Access Studio

Historically lampworking … also known as beading … comes from people working glass in the flame of an oil lamp.  The glass blowers would blow into the flame(adding air and oxygen to it) to get it hotter and hotter so that it would melt or soften glass for them to manipulate and sculpt it. We don’t know exactly where and when this artform started since the term lampworking has been loosely defined in history. d. Fusing began to regain popularity in the early part of the 20th century, particularly in the U.S. during the 1960s.
