Man! I had no idea.This is brilliant.We seriously need a separate section to show off our artwork.\trouble is matsurfers are beyond modest and retiring,befitting their stupendous accomplishments.
I helped a conglomerate of blowers in the area of Otaru in Hokkaido,Japan to promote their wares a few years ago.Your examples are reminiscent of their work.

Wow. Beautiful pieces Mattitude - the orbs are mesmerising. Blowing and flame-working with glass is just magical, the process is some alchemy to behold. Keep sharing the process and pieces!
