Featured Artist De from the Glass Zone on Etsy

The Glass Zone
- De

De is a lampwork artist in Arcadia. She works on a Hot Head Torch*, which makes me even more impressed with her skills, especially when she makes her murrini. I make simple cane murrini, but De makes things with her murrini. For example, look at this awesome orchid murrini! ---------------------->
I am so impressed! How does she do this?

De shares a secret or two in this wonderful tutorial on making her Citrus Slice Murrini.
This tutorial is well written and full of wonderful photos! De is so talented!

De makes beads, too. This is a big hole bead that she has listed in her store. It used some of her very own murrini! Wow! I'm impressed! De calls this bead Purple Pansy and Wildflower Big Hole Bead. It's beautiful!
Be sure to visit The Glass Zone. You won't be disappointed!

*A Hot Head Torch is usually considered a beginner's torch because it is a single fuel torch and it doesn't get as hot as other torches. There are those amazing artists who do these wonderful things with their hot heads. De is one of them!
