The Corning Museum of Glass is great resource for anybody interested in glass. It’s a place with world’s largest collection of glass, showcasing 3,500 years of glass art and history.If you don’t have chance to go and explore the glass exhibitions or take a class I highly recommend to check their channel on youtube.com. I found two demonstrations I can watch again and again and I can always enjoy the hour full of tips and advises when watching the masters to make lampwork beads.
First one is with artist Kristina Logan where she demonstrates her precisely patterned and delicate lampwork beads.
My other favorite demonstration is with Heather Trimlett. I was amazed with the magic of making perfect twists and then applying the twists to the lampwork bead.
I am looking forward to next demonstration of making lampwork beads which will be in June with artist Stephanie Sersich.
