Beads, Blown bubbles & vessels, small sculptures & marbles are all fun to do in the torch. I’ve been FlameWorking for 3 1/2 years now and I’m obsessed! It’s an amazing process and I’m getting better and better.
I use a Bethlehem Alpha dual fuel torch and it’s hooked up to a 10 litre oxygen concentrator, a dedicated natural gas line with multiple shut offs. One of the most important things about FlameWorking is a critical need for good ventilation. Some of the glass can give off fumes that you just don’t want floating around. So I have a fresh air intake that is at the back of my bench with a 420 cfm exhaust fan that exhausts out the back of the building.
So, safe and amazing!
