Flaming Fools Lampwork Art Glass
by Michael and Brad
Primarily self-taught, we have developed many styles, and have been oft labeled as having a 'more is more' aesthetic. Michael became addicted to the flame after a weekend workshop in 2006, and Brad jumped right into the fun in 2008.
We work from our home, in Oakland, CA, surrounded by an acre of trees, yards, and a small creek running through the property, which fancies itself as a raging river in the rainy months. We share our space with our cat Buster, who adopted us in 2011, walking in and making himself at home, and our 2 Amazon parrots, Ollie and Arlo.
We use Effetre glass from Murano, Italy, and Double Helix and Kugler silvered glasses. All pieces are slowly annealed and cooled in a digitally controlled kiln, giving them strength and durability.
Pictures of some of our recent creations are shown at the bottom of this page.
