Hi All,

I'm a total soap virgin. On a daily basis I melt glass at crazy temperatures and swirl it all around!

Looking forward to cooling things down and adding some lovely smells.

Thanks for the lovely welcome everyone.

The glass swirling is called Lampworking and I'm very lucky to do it fulltime in my home studio in Burton on Trent.

I spend a lot of time in wet marquees demonstrating and trying to sell the glass. I may have met a few of you along the way   Grin

Quite likely, I've been in quite a few caft marquees over the years, particularly at steam rallies, so may have seen you.

Do you have a website with your lampwork?

Wow!!  How clever.  That looks like a tricky, skilled and very specialised craft.  It's beautiful  :buttrf:
