LamPwork techniques for Torch firing

lampwork torch firingBea Stoetz (from Speyer, Germany) is a lampworker who developed a new twist for her lampwork - she uses her techniques to enamel on copper! Using thin gauge copper and the 9000 Thompson Enamel series, she uses her lampwork torch (propane and oxygen) to fire the enamel and her glass stringers, using 104COE, mostly Effetre glass from Murano. She pulls thin plain and multi-colored stringers and twisties (little twisted canes), and makes her own Murrine (like Millefiori but not made in molds). Thickness of material is not important and she always counter enamels on both flat and domed copper. Bea sells her work (both glass and enameled) on Etsy, including a tutorial e-book for direct download. Check out Bea's store at on Etsy.
