What is Flameworking?

Borosilicate glass flameworking is a glass working technique that involves manipulating borosilicate glass rods and tubes using a torch flame to create various objects and artworks. Unlike soft glass, which has a lower melting point and is commonly used in glassblowing, borosilicate glass can withstand higher temperatures. In borosilicate glass flameworking, the glassworker heats the glass rods or tubes in the flame of a torch until they become molten and malleable. By controlling the intensity and direction of the flame, the artist can manipulate the glass to create intricate designs, sculptures, jewelry, pipes, marbles, and more.
