Seth Parks "I now focus on creating forms from nature such as flowers and animals then usually incorporate them into lampworked goblets or perfume bottles. Lampworking or â˜â™flameworkingâ™â™ is a technique derived from the centuries old technique of blowing glass using an oil lamp. I start with a glass tube or rod and then apply the desired colors by melting glass on the outside of the tube using my propane/oxygen torch, burning at 5300 degrees Fahrenheit. I then reheat the piece in the flame, blow it out to the desired size and shape, and then further shape it with various graphite and metal tools. I have attended classes at some of the worldâ™s leading glass schools, including at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass, Penland School of Crafts, Snow Farm and Pilchuck Glass School. "
