Jubilant Glass & Art is proud to offer its expressive collection of fine, artisan glass. Formed in molten fire, each creation is a work of art as individual as its owner.

About Flamework Glass
Flamework glass employs a tabletop gas torch to produce a steady flame for manipulating glass in its molten state. The glass begins as clear and colored long rods and tube. Crushed and powdered glass known as “frit” is also used for texture and pattern effects. Wielding a variety of shaping tools, the glass artist blows, stretches, twists, mixes, melts, and smashes the flowing mass into its final form. The finished work is kiln annealed, a controlled cooling process which allows the flowing molecules to come to rest in a stable configuration for lasting durability.
Prior to the invention of the modern gas torch, oil and wax lamps were used to sustain the steady flame required for producing glass. Today, flamework generally involves the use of a propane gas and oxygen fuel. The mixture of the gases within the flame help determine the color effects produced by the various metals and minerals within the glass.
Historically, the secrets of the master glass artists were jealously guarded by the states and institutions they were employed under. With the development of modern industry and an explosion in the palette available to the modern artist, a glass renaissance is underway in small studios, shops, and garages around the world. The United States Pacific Northwest has been a hotbed of such experimentation and creativity.
Our shop runs two torches; a Carlisle CC Major Burner and a Carlisle Minor Burner. The glass art we produce all comes from quality, Northstar, Glass Alchemy, Momka, and T.A.G. colors and Simax clear rod and tubing.
