Organic Lampwork

One of my most beloved styles of glasswork is ‘organic’. Simply put, organic design refers to a more free-form approach to bead making, allowing the materials themselves to dictate placement without getting too fussy over a perfect end result. At least that’s my definition of organic bead making.

In a nutshell, it just means allowing the glass to do its own thing. I’d say the biggest challenge with organic design is to know when enough is enough. Although, I am the first to admit sometimes I go overboard when the reactions I’m getting are just so spectacular that I think more is more. πŸ˜‰

Either way, organic lampwork bead design is something I find myself gravitating back to time and again.

  1. These beads are beautiful. My favorite beads are organic shapes. I also loved etched beads that look like sea glass. Wonderful detail, my favorite ones are your low tide beads.
