I'm a lampworker!
I am a lampworker, and no I don't fix lamps. Sometimes I fix dinner, but not lamps. Using a torch, I melt glass. Sounds kind of crazy, right? I take rods of glass, melt them in a flame and roll the melted glass on a steel rod called a mandrel. Then I pop the finished bead into a kiln to anneal.
