Meditation Lampwork Beads

Purple Pinwheels by Mary Williams

I imagine I’m not alone in the world of lampworkers when it comes to having a design that I feel I can lose myself in. For me it is a design that is a friend that is comfortable to me in the way that an old pair of worn jeans is. It is a design that centers me when it seems my work, my rhythm, is a quarter step off in time.

For me, it is this design. You will see it, and variations of it, big and small, repeated in my work. Of all the designs I have created it is my favorite. Perhaps it is because I created it during a difficult time in my life, when working on the torch was the only way to clear my head, to make the outside world vanish if only for a short while, and to find a bit of peace so that I could deal with what I needed to when the world rushed back in.

I will always love this design.
