Bronwen Heilman

During the recent ISGB conference, that was held here in my hometown, Bronwen Heilman taught a class at More Fire Glass. I was beyond the moon to be asked to help out during the class - I would not call it assisting but more like being the class gopher.

































This is one of her demonstration beads that she gave to More Fire. How cool is that?
If you ever get the chance to take one of her classes by all means do so - she is an excellent, and generous, teacher and a very charming and funny woman. Please, check out her website - gHosTcOw GlassWorks.

Is this an underglaze painting on glass under clear glass?

She reverse paints enamels on 104 sheet glass and then fires it. Then she wraps the little painted glass plates around a molten beads which encases the painting under the glass.
Genius!
