Onyx Glass uses clear Spruce Pine Glass supplied by Glass Axis to make each piece. This glass is melted in a furnace to a temperature of 2100°F and must be maintained at over 1000°F until finished and placed in an annealing oven to slowly cool to room temperature.
All colored pieces use glass frit, small pieces of colored glass shards. Colored glass possesses various metals and metal oxides to give it a characteristic color.
I currently attend the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine working on a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. As of May 2019 I have graduated from OSU with a Bachelor's of Science in Engineering. I have been learning glass blowing and continue to produce pieces at Glass Axis in Columbus, Ohio. Blowing glass started as a hobby and has grown to a full online store. I plan to continue growing as an artist, and creating more refined pieces of art.
