Lampworking is the ancient technique of melting glass in an oil lamp and winding it around wires to form beads. After the beads cooled, the wire was removed with acids leaving a hole on which to string the bead. Today, Lampworking is still very similar to Ancient works. We melt glass rods with a Minor Burner (instead of an oil lamp) and wrap the molten glass around stainless steel rods coated with a bead release. When the beads are finished in the torch, they are placed into a glass annealer, or kiln,  to cool them slowly which prevents thermal shock, breaking, and cracking.
