Beautiful Dragon on Amethyst created by Sandra Young using Flameworking techniques.
"Flameworking is a contemporary term for lampworking. The latter has its origins dating back to the 15th century when an oil lamp was used, with a thin stream of air to increase the heat and melt the glass. The technique was used across Europe. Apparatus used by Galileo at this time still exists. My work uses this exciting technique where glass is melted within the flame and is sculpted and manipulated into forms to express my love of the natural world".
