Our next collaboration is adding a touch of glass to our turnings, exploring the potential of combined mediums has been our passion for some time. We have finally began to make it happen!

The attention to detail dancing flames shows how complex this form of artwork can be. Listen to the commands, and observe the execution and technique. The fusion of art and artist must be perfect or the entire piece can be lost in a single misstep. Having been there (Eric took a few classes a while back) its intense! Shown without edits, as live as it gets without being next to the heat. As soon as we get some images of the finished piece we’ll share!
