This guide provides a selective list of print and multimedia resources about flameworking (also called lampworking) techniques. For additional information, please search our library catalog or contact a reference librarian through our Ask a Librarian service.
Flameworking is the technique of forming objects from rods and tubes of glass that, when heated in a flame, become soft and can be manipulated into the desired shape. Formerly, the source of the flame was an oil or paraffin lamp used in conjunction with foot-powered bellows; today, gas-fueled torches are used.
