Flamework is a glass forming method that involves using heat from a torch to shape and sometimes bond glass.

In the first part of this lesson, you'll learn about flameworking and how to make some basic flameworked elements. Then, we'll discuss how flameworking can be combined with kilnforming to achieve effects that range from representational to abstract.

You can use this cross-process approach with any form of Bullseye compatible glass—including sheet, frit, rod, or stringer. In the process, you'll broaden the scope of objects and designs at your command.
