Pam Wilcox

Pam Wilcox  started out doing stained glass but morphed into lampworking (using a torch to melt glass) and fusing (cutting sheets of glass into designs and melting them together in a kiln).

"The hot glass and use of cool tools is much more suited for my personality.  I like to watch the glass move when it melts and I like the feeling of opening up the kiln and seeing inside.  Sometimes it is like Christmas morning and the kiln gods have blessed you with great results.  I also like the challenge of not getting burned by melted glass and the sometimes unpredictable nature of it.  I like lighting the torch and using my hands to shape the glass"
