Four Tails Lampwork

Posted by Four Tails Lampwork on 1/12/2007
There truly are four tails in the household--the three cats and my rescue whatsit, Mr. Justin Renate McCavity Wigglebutt, Esq. The cats --- usually --- don't stick their tails in the torch. Generally, though, the four of them are my Quality control Inspectors.

Beads of Courage

Beads of Courage

Making butterflies is such a sad thing; each one is a child lost. My butterflies aren't very good yet, but maybe they will help someone remember a child with joy as well as sorrow.

Purple hearts are so much happier--a celebration of a struggle fought and won, a marker of the triumph of hope.

Hand Bound Books

I began as a bookbinder, and I often use beads and bead images in my books. I will also make books for lampworkers, such as my frit test book.

By night (and many days), mild-mannered historian teaching adults in night school ... by day (when I can carve out space), FlamingTorchWoman ... okay, mild-mannered historian with an oxy-propane torch and lots of glass. So far organics seem to be my love, but ya never know ...
