Thornblossom lampwork bead by fairyfrog Thornblossom lampwork bead by fairyfrog
Tribal inspired thorns and watercolour rose in lampworked glass.

One of the first project on my brand new mega minor torch. Got a lot to learn, but at least this idea I had for some time (and didn't succeed with on the HotHead) seems to work!

Need to get a cleaner clear glass though.

Approx. 2 cm from top to bottom. Cim and Effetre glass,
A design I'll revisit!

From wikipedia:
Lampworking is a type of glasswork that uses a gas fueled torch to melt rods and tubes of clear and colored glass. Once in a molten state, the glass is formed by blowing and shaping with tools and hand movements. It is also known as flameworking or torchworking, as the modern practice no longer uses oil-fueled lamps. Although the art form has been practiced since ancient Syrian (1 Century B.C., B. Dunham) times, it became widely practiced in Murano, Italy in the 14th century. In the mid 19th century lampwork technique was extended to the production of paperweights, primarily in France, where it became a popular art form, still collected today. Lampworking differs from glassblowing in that glassblowing uses a blowpipe to inflate a glass blob known as a gob or gather, whereas lampworking manipulates glass either by the use of tools, gravity, or by blowing directly into the end of a glass tube. ;)
