About Bandhu Dunham

Glass is amazing—beautiful to behold and highly addictive to play with. I have been working with glass since 1975, sharing my lifelong passion through demonstrations and books as well as teaching at schools, conferences and studios around the world. Here I will offer my love for borosilicate glass shaped in a gas-oxygen flame, including techniques, travels, experiments and occasional ruminations on the artist's life. My goal is to help you enjoy glass more deeply, as an artist, spectator or collector. I will also make available some of my process and discoveries with exclusive content. Your participation informs my journey and the community of lampwork glassblowers, as we share information and inspiration for the benefit of all. Your support also helps me organize my archive of photos, videos and other information to distill, edit and publish future book projects.

Please remember that you are responsible for your own safety. Working with glass has inherent dangers, including getting burned or cut. You know the drill: Exercise appropriate caution when attempting anything you see in my videos. Children should be supervised when working with glass. You can order my books from all the suppliers of glass equipment, from Amazon.com, or from my website—the only place where you can ask for an autograph—Salusaglassworks.com.
