Turn hot glass into cool stuff!

Vicki Schneider creates her collectible one-of-a-kind lampworked art by melting, manipulating, and blowing soda lime (aka "soft") glass in a propane and oxygen torch. She uses only simple tools like tweezers, a paring knife, and a small metal blow pipe.
Once the piece has been completed, it goes through the final annealing process to remove thermal stress and increase durability.
Vicki's sculptures may appear fragile, but they have considerable strength from the way they are designed and created.
Prior to shipping, each piece is encased in a custom protective cocoon to ensure its safety. If a piece is damaged during transit, Vicki will repair or replace it at her expense.
