Welcome to Kalypso Glass and our range of Artisan Handmade Lampwork Beads, Jewellery, Fused Glass and Gifts.
Everything here is handmade by Ruth and Andy Harrison, two of the countries few full-time lampwork artists, in our Burton-On-Trent studio.
Our range and handmade lampwork and fused glass currently consists of –
Lampwork Glass handled gifts and tableware
Such as carving sets, cake serving etc, cheese knives and letter openers. All using our handmade lampwork glass and Sheffield Steel blades by Arthur Price.
Handmade Christmas decorations
Each decoration is cut by hand from sheets of coloured glass, these are then assembled in a kiln and fired to fuse together, before beings slowly cooled. Our range of baubles and icicles are formed by melting rods or tubes of glass in an oxy-propane torch and twisting or blowing into shape.
Handmade Lampwork Glass Jewellery
A range of lampwork Murano glass jewellery, each piece made by melting rods of coloured Murano glass in a flame and then shaping to form a huge range of jewellery and beads.
All formed by manipulating glass using fire and heat.
