Hot glass is a journey full of discovery.  That’s the objective of this blog…documenting the journey and sharing discoveries in hot glass.

Welcome to Paula’s GlassRoots.  I’ve been working with hot glass from my Maryland studio for almost 10 years, focusing primarily on lampwork (using torch to make glass beads) and fusing.  Like many, I work full time. Hot glass is my hobby and my therapy – and since beads and jewelry go hand in hand, this hobby also progressed into jewelry-making.  Primarily self-taught, I enjoy the constant challenge and variety that glass offers.  So many applications, it’s totally unique to the individual, and it’s always full of happy accidents.
