Great job.

There is a place on Maui were they make glass jellyfishes but much bigger( about 20 cm, 10 inches) but they don't have these beautiful colors. I'm not a big fan of real jelly fishes but I like the 3D aspect and the colors of these art pieces.

This convinces me I have to switch from soft glass to borosilicate. Borosilicate seems to allow to work on bigger pieces without constantly maintaining the heat to avoid thermal breaks. Would my oxygen-propan with a head about 1/2 inch size be enough? Any advice would be welcome( books, websites, tutorials, web store...). Thanks.

Hi,

For borosilicate you need a really hot flame, the hotter the better.  The boro glass does give you more time to work between heats, but it is still really important to keep it nice and hot so it doesn't crack. I would suggest getting your hands on the "contemporary lampworking" book set if you can. Some good websites to check out are preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'www.lampworktutorials.com') , www.lampworketc.com, the flow magazine has some free tutorials on their website.  There are other forums as well, the melting pot is a good one.  If you browse around those sites there'll be some good stuff to get you started.  We've made a couple tutorials, one for our flower pendants on preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'www.glassflowerpendants.com') and if you look on our website http://www.glasspeace.com/glass-pendants/glass-mushroom-pendants  there's a link there to a video I made on how to make a glass mushroom bead.  Youtube is also good to browse around for tutorials.  Good luck with the boro, if you've got any more questions let us know!

Peace,

Amir Shawn
