Liquid Core technique classes and tool.

2013 feb fr tungstonimplode1

Beau Tungston Disk

In this class we will be making beads on tungsten instead of on a mandrel with bead release. Beau Anderson will teach a new way to achieve highly detailed disks without the looming problem of the bead release breaking free. Beau has seen and felt the limitations of this and has developed a new way. He has been practicing this alternative skill for 8 years and is now ready to share all the tricks with you. Clean double bead beads can be achieved in one sitting. Implosions or pre-made components can be pierced to become your bead core; heat can be sent into the bead-core via the tungsten to avoid overheating details on the surface. Come discover all the possibilities of this new method while filling in the voids in your personal technique list.

Soft Glass Sculpture


This workshop is intended for intermediate to advanced flame workers who wish to expand into the world of soft glass sculpture. Beau will demonstrate and guide students through specific techniques that allow for the building of separate forms, and then the combination of them into larger self standing sculptures. The process comes from an Italian tradition, by which the mass of molten glass is gathered and shaped by using knives , tweezers and other tools; all the while paying attention to proper heating and cooling. The flame advances progressively forward as the piece is built, making it possible to go larger than is typically done with torch work. Potential forms students may be creating include animals, trees, humans, birds, fish, flowers or other flowing images from nature. For more information and photos, go to

Beau Anderson was introduced to the torch by his mother, Sage, at the young age of seven. Although he has diverse interests, Beau’s focus within glass art has explored beadmaking and its history; as well as integrative multi-media projects. He has demonstrated and instructed the art of glass beadmaking throughout the Americas, both at a grassroots level and at such prestigious institutions as Corning Museum of Glass, Pittsburgh Glass Center and Pilchuck Glass School; as well as internationally in France, Germany, Denmark and Spain. Beau’s work has been published in Ornament magazine; as well as in Beads of Glass, Beading for the Soul and The History of Beads.

It’s all about heat control

Working with Glass in the flame is all about heat control. From the first time you introduce glass into the flame your focus in on how to get this glass hot enough to move without making it explode all over (heat control). In fact every technique you learn is just another lesson on heat control. Even when you have mastered long lists of techniques you are still concentrating on heat control to combine them.

I always try to work with the glass rather then telling it what to do and I do this with heat control, gravity and very basic tools.
