Laura Teague Jewelry

Glass / Baton Rouge, LA

Artist Statement

I make glass beads using a torch and long rods of glass. Each bead starts with a base color and then additional colors and shapes are added to the base color. All work is done in the flame, using basic hand tools (some designed specifically for lamp working and others are adapted to be used with the glass) so that the glass can melt together into its final form.
