DVD by Lauri Copeland covers both soft glass and boro, using a variety of techniques. If you are frustrated that your beads aren't round, your lines aren't straight, and your angles aren't sharp, this is the video for you. Lauri's work is very 'organic' and shows that it's ok to color outside of the lines. As quoted by Lauri... "The projects are on a beginner/intermediate level, but previous lampwork experience is recommended. Each chapter begins with a materials list. All of the projects are made from borosilicate, with one exception: There is one bead made from 104 soft glass. The DVD includes the following: Using a rod of Glass Alchemy Amazon Night, I test my torch for neutral and reducing flame settings. Three encased beads are wound on a single mandrel. I shape the "Crocodile Tears", then flame strike the boro color. Dot placement and color layers are combined in the next bead. A clear encasement enhances the design. Soft glass (COE 104) is used for the 'Kimono' bead. There are step-by-step instructions for building a starburst cane and a multi color twisty. After winding the base bead, I apply several twisties, shape with a crunch tool, and apply starburst chips. The wine stopper stopper has a long slender boro base made with frit. I use a marver to form a shape that combines asymmetry with balance and a freeform 'Amoeba Disc' is made off mandrel".
