“Ballerina Lace” – RAW 8/52

The Ring of the Week (RAW 8/52) is entitled “Ballerina Lace.”

I really enjoyed making the cane for the band on this borosilicate glass ring, similar to a cane called Filigrana which is cane with Spiral thread patterns in it.   There are many different canes and I’m having fun researching them as I am not sure the difference between them all.  Flameworkers modify traditional glass blowing techniques to create complex glass canes.

I blogged about Zanfirico cane a while back in a post about Harold Williams Cooney here.

A great video about making complex cane here featuring Lino Tagliapietra:
