Welcome To Glassadelic!
Glassadelic was created for one simple reason: the appreciation of fine glass art. With improvements in technology and techniques, glass artists are consistently finding innovative new ways to test the boundaries of the medium. Many of the modern breakthroughs in the lampworking industry are thanks to the work of a more non-traditional form of the trade, which is functional glass artwork. Lampworkers specializing in producing tobacco pipes and related items have led the way in the invention of fuming precious metals onto borosilicate glass, color production, sculpting and decoration techniques, and especially glass lathe work.
Glass art can be appreciated on a variety of levels, but one thing is for certain, and that is the personal connection that exists between a piece and its owner. In many people's lives there exists almost no better combination of functionality and beauty. We at Glassadelic want to bring that marriage of form and function to everyone who is interested in this fascinating artistic movement, and provide the knowledge and opportunity for anyone to hold their very own masterpiece in their hand!
