This piece was created by flameworking and hot-sculpting up-cycled American pressed glass.
I find my glass by a variety of sources. Either I rummage through junk stores and thrift stores or people catch wind of my process and leave me old glass on my doorstep.
Sometimes people are throwing the glass out and are happy for me to give it a second life. It is therefore tricky for me to define whether it is "recycled" or "up-cycled", I just consider it reconstructed, and definitely happier to be looked at a second time.
