WOW! Those are great! How did you get them to be opaque like that. They almost look like clay. Very cool.

Thanks Pinky K!  glass for lampworking comes in opaque and transparent rods, so I didn't do anything special.

I did not know that. VERY cool! I really like that they are odd and creepy and with a mat finish and not bright and shiny like most lampwork. It works so well with your designs.

Wait these are glass? How do you work with it? Do you heat it?

I'm not an expert on lamp work AT ALL and someone correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure these are made by heating glass rods with a special torch and carefully arranging the melted glass in shapes that actually makes cool things and cool colors!

It is amazing to me. There is no way I could ever do it my hands are just not steady enough.
