Handmade lampwork glass focal bead - Across the Moors
Handmade made by myself in my North Yorkshire UK Studio All my lampwork goes straight from the flame into my digitally controlled kiln for annealing.
Inspired by the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside, I love the Heather in bloom at the foot of the moors.
I have used a range of glass to create the bead. All the detail is applied in the flame of the torch using hair thin strands of glass and enamel powder which is melted into the glass. To add to the texture and depth some of the enamel has been left slightly raised.
Once the bead has been through the kiln cycle I have tumbled it to give it a soft sea glass feel and look.
