Friday Feature – Lampwork Goddesses

This week on my Friday Feature I will be featuring the work of some wonderful self representing artist/artisan lampworkers. The theme is “Goddesses” – one that has been explored in depth by the lampwork community, myself included.

Something about glass seems to lend itself well to the curvy female form. I love making these little ladies and I even wrote a book about some of them. To me, they represent the strength and beauty that all women possess. While they come in all shapes, sizes, and colours, and all have very different personalities too, they have one thing in common: they are all beautiful. I like to think of women that way, that every woman has inside her the potential to be beautiful and strong. It’s not about physical looks or conventional beauty either by any means. It’s this power that we all have inside. Women are amazing creatures. And the Goddess embodies all of that.

I did a video tutorial on how I make my goddess beads – it can be found here. Meanwhile, on to the gallery.
