Hello and Welcome!  My name is Leigh Anne and this is a quick peek into my studio, where I make glass and do a little metal smithing. I tend to prefer Reichenbach glass rods, but I also have a strong affinity for Czech, even though it can be finicky to work with.  I use a Carlisle High Oxygen Mini CC torch, with propane and oxygen.  I switch between tanked oxygen and an oxygen concentrator, depending on what type of glass I'm working with.  My work is then annealed in a digitaly controlled kiln, for strength and durability.  I purchase my sterling silver from mills here in the USA, and any components that I have to purchase from anywhere else, I personally acid test to verify the purity.  You are assured of a beautiful, high quality wearable piece of art when you own something from The Glass Attic!
