|Why is it called Lampworking?
Deb, I thought you made lamps!!!!! But really you make glass beads. Why is it called Lampworking??????
Well, eons and eons ago early lampworking was done in the flame of an oil lamp and before that it was probably crudely done in campfire. Now we have ultimate deluxe super torches. I couldn't imagine having to wait forever for the glass to melt in a campfire flame. And no music to rock to either, eeek!!!!
Lampworking also goes by name of flame working, glass blowing and torch working.
