Glassworks by Christine Cotton

Each bead or marble is made using glass rods from Italy, Germany, and China. I melt the glass in the flame of the torch, and use gravity, shaping tools, heat, and flame chemistry, (and some luck!!)  to make each piece.    I wrap the glass around a steel mandrel if I am making a bead with a hole, or create the piece 'off mandrel' if it is to be a marble or sculpture. It is then annealed in a digital kiln to ensure strength and durability.
