Go To: Subject: The Flame Off 2015 @ Uttoxeter Race Course, UK
The Flame off is the largest Lampwork Glass event in Europe, The event brings glass bead makers together from around the world to share ideas and tips and offers a hands on experience to sit down in front of a flame and make glass beads. Leading glass artists will be in attendance to offer classes and demonstrations throughout both days for even more inspiration.
For novice bead makers or people keen to see what it is all about there are taster benches with access to an array of materials to have a go and take your creations home, for free.
In the “Lampwork Village” traders and top suppliers from Europe will be selling equipment and supplies to cater for your bead making needs. Top Artists will also be selling their creations that will make the perfect present for yourself or someone you know.

For more information or to purchase tickets:

Donovan Brooke,

Good morning. My name is Phil Wittmer. I am a Customer Service Representative at Engineered Ceramics. Our site received an update a couple months back. This has resulted in the link to our site that you posted to be broken. I realize your post was from a few years back, but wanted to take a moment to post a new link so the readers of this blog are not inconvenienced with a broken link. The following link, http://www.engineeredceramics.com/products/glass-melting-crucibles.html, will direct you to content about our glass melting crucibles.

Thanks,

Phil Wittmer

Donovan,
I would like to chat with you about wire melters. I am thinking of building one or buying one. You seem very knowledgeable about these furnaces What would be the easiest way to get ahold of you?



Thanks for the interest

You may contact me at eric@priestsmillglassworks.com - 613 703-9430

Corrected e-mail

Yes, by now I have been around the block a few times. This photo-blog is of my 3rd melter build of this class:

I hope by sharing the experience I have gained during this process so that the whole Glass Art community can benefit. Once I am done I will post all the design documents on line for whomever wishes to build their own.

For those who want a kit or just wish a complete unit, I have assigned the manufacturing rights to a local stainless steel machine shop.

I have decided that I need to keep the supply chain closer to home (OK in Canada)

I am building the new production prototype and Ray Jacques of Envirequip envirequip@hughes.net will be manufacturing the kits and complete units 4 km south of here

Hello everyone,
My name is Brent. I am brand new to this forum. I have noticed that most posts on here are 4-8 years old. I am hoping to chat with other folks trying to build backyard hot shops that are cheap and efficient to run but are quality. I have been working with glass for about 20 years but am trying to learn more about wire melters because of their efficiency, cost and safety. Donovan seems to know a lot about this subject so I am trying to learn as much as I can from his posts. Hopefully he is still on here but if anyone else has any advice on wire melters in particular I would appreciate the help. I may have some information of value I can contribute in many other areas of glass. Feel free to contact me
Thanks

Hi Brent, I'm fairly busy at present, but will email you some time this week. However, always feel free to post any questions here at the forum as well. Though there are not a huge number of people on this forum, there are some knowledgeable lurkers who may respond as well.

If I forget to email you for some reason, please remind me here!

Sincerely,
Donovan

Donovan,
Reading this forum, I am convinced that a wire melter might be exactly what I need. I am considering purchasing one or think I might have the skills to make one. I would really appreciate a little bit of your time to discuss this option. My email is brentsheehan@gmail.com. If you have a way I can chat with you I would be forever in your debt. Thanks,
Brent Sheehan
