Encased Glass Flower Pendant Flameworking Workshop with David Braut
Using a hollow “implosion” technique, students will learn how to create a clear encased rose from hollow clear borosilicate tubing and some colored glass stringers. This simple but ingenious technique is extremely versatile once mastered and glassmakers use it to make encased marbles and pendants as well as “disc flips”, reticellos, fillacellos, signature marbles and many more. Suitable for beginners as well as intermediate flame workers, this technique is a great segue from solid techniques to hollow.

Facilitator’s Bio: David Braut – David started flame working in a garage in Norfolk, Virginia in 1998. He was enchanted with the process and enjoyed the gratification and challenge of learning to manipulate such a sexy material as glass. He continued to learn and build his levels of skills as he made and sold marbles and pendants as well as “functional glass” at street fairs, festivals and concerts over the next decade. He especially likes to make cups, goblets and “stemware” as they are very challenging to produce with precision and feels that they use all the layers of skills he has built over his career to realize his visions. David continues to enjoy glass as a medium and feels that he will as long as there is something new to learn….
