Bill Taylor

FLAMEWORK GLASS BLOWING STUDIO


Glass Artist / Glass Blower / Born in New Zealand

The skill and process required to produce these breathtaking works of art takes years of experience to achieve. One mistake during the intricate crafting of these complex glass pieces can result not only in the loss of the work itself but also the forfeiture of countless hours dedicated to preparing and mixing the vibrant colors, as well as laying down the intricate canes of glass. Some of the glass used, known as strike glass, keeps its colors hidden until the piece is fully finished and annealed, adding an element of surprise to the artistic process.

Consequently, I must consistently remember the precise layers and placement of colored glass throughout the creation process. The vibrant hues can also be influenced, or even transformed, by the alchemy of the flame, making the torch an indispensable tool for any glass blower.

When crafting glass of such complexity, always working on the edge of what is possible.
