About the Glass
Tim Lindemann uses a technique of glassblowing called flameworking, or lampworking. This technique involves using a large, multi stage torch to melt rods and tubes of glass together and then blowing, twisting, and pulling them to acquire the desired shapes. The glass that is used is borosilicate, or pyrex glass. Borosilicate melts at a higher temperature than most of the glasses traditionally used for glass blowing and therefore needs to be worked in a torch. For coloration Tim uses colored glass rods, frit and powder, as well as silver and gold fume. The recent technological developments in lampworking equipment and materials have allowed Tim to pioneer new techniques and create bold original works that would have been impossible to create in years past.
