I work with all the techniques of glass. I have been blowing glass for 17 years. I have been casting glass 8 years. I have been cold working/polishing glass for 15 years. I have been flameworking intermittently for 17 years. I have been making holograms for 5 years. I recently learned how to do neon this summer.
