>> Beautiful Delicate Pieces: Glass Art By Robert Mickelsen
Working with glass is a highly sensitive process. You must know 100% what you are doing. Florida-based glass artist Robert Mickelsen is a master of his craft. After only 1 year at college he became and lampmaker and most of his skills are self taught. He says: 'The objects I create are narratives, personal vignettes that reveal the secrets of my innermost thoughts.'
Glassblowing is a glass forming technique that involves inflating molten glass into a bubble, with the help of a blowpipe. There are several techniques required to achieve results like this.
