The Corning Museum of Glass – demonstrations of making lampwork beads

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  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.
