Earrings - E1511 : Blue Exosphere Barrels
Artist: Wendy Adams
Medium: Lampwork Glass Beads|
Bead Size: 5/8" dia.
Artist Notes: Wendy starts by melting Italian glass rods over a 220ºF propane/oxygen flame. The molten glass is then wound onto a stainless steel rod called a mandrel. By using heat, gravity and a variety of tools, a bead is born! Then the bead is put into a kiln to remove all the stresses from the glass thus strengthening them; making them more durable.
