Glass Art by Cynthia

 

North Carolina Glass Artist Cynthia Tucker creates each bead one at a time in the flame of a 2000 degree torch using colored glass rods which are melted and wound onto coated steel mandrels. Combining sculpting techniques and blending glass colors, unique designs are formed into tiny works of wearable art.

The finished beads are annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for several hours to insure strength and durability.
