    Still some of the best lampwork I've ever seen. Thank you so much for sharing with us!

    One question - is the 'water' in your glasses actually water? or is it glass? I can't figure out how you could lampwork completely out of glass what appears to be a glass with water in it.

    For example the cherub peeing in the glass - the pee is glass, and it looks like the water itself is glass, but short of casting the glass & water component it I can't figure out how you'd do it.

    I was guessing perhaps you just use water in the glasses for your photos, but I still can't figure how you photograph them so well if this was the case.

    Actually I don't use water in my pictures. All you see is glass and the explanation is quite simple. I do the round surface of water out of boro glass and then attach it to the ready glass cup with UV glue. The main problem is to do the round surface as round as possible and the size of the surface should be exactly the size of the glass top/

    Some of the most creative and insanely well executed sculptures I've ever seen, boro or otherwise. Thank you for expanding my view of the boro medium.
