Lampwork Art ~ Encapsulating Life within Glass

When I first came across today's shop, I was fascinated. First, by the piece featured here in this post. And then, when I followed the link that took me into their shop, that fascination grew with the first glance at the many other amazing pieces they have for sale as well.

I love lampwork. I've been a big fan of fire since I was a wee little thing, and the fact that you can use fire to mold and shape glass into such unique and amazing pieces of art as is possible in lampwork artistry? It's just breathtaking to me and extremely inspiring.

I also love going into a shop online and feel as if I've stepped into an artist's museum exhibition.

Vonbeads Glass Gallery accomplishes this with flare and beauty both.

Each piece in their gallery is like a tiny world encapsulated in a bubble of glass and seems almost alive within their dreamy ensconced worlds beneath each bubble. Looking at this pieces is like a peek into those dreamy other dimensions.

I've spent well over an hour or more in their shop just enjoying the artwork within, and I'm sure you'll be fascinated too, so go take a look!
