Jam Bear Glass
I am a lampworker located in Ottawa, Canada. Lampworking is a style of glassblowing where you use a torch to heat the glass.
In January 2016 I acquired my own studio in Ottawa and began lampworking full-time under the alias JamBear. Being one of the only lampworkers around meant there weren't many people to learn from so I turned to youtube tutorials by Dustin Revere and Red Beard to learn the basics.
In my short career I've been fortunate enough to meet my heroes, Dustin Revere, Red Beard, and Robert A. Mickelsen. I've also traveled to Toronto and Vancouver for events so I can't imagine what the future holds.
