Visiting Artist Series - GAS Conference June 05, 2015 Bob Snodgrass Flameworking
Tricks With Silver and Gold
Snodgrass will demonstrate how to make marbles and pendants with fumed images encased. He will also use the boro technique of mushroom marble and create some assorted vessels.
His original coloring discovery began with silver; he softened it, filed it, and then blended it into clear glass, producing color rods. This lead to the thin film, whole metal deposition technique that is now called fuming. He then combined fuming with a miniaturization of off-hand techniques into lampworking to produce his unique style of work.
