Lampworking with dichroic glass - Delphi Glass
16 minute video showing working with dichroic glass in lampworking. The commentary is very good but it would have been better to get more of a close up on the actual work in the flame from the very beginning. At about eight minutes in you start to get close up's of the work which are much better. Nevertheless, this is a mini-masterclass in lampworking with dichroic glass and intermediate lampworkers will probably enjoy it.
