Who am I:

My name is Michelle Schlotfeldt and a self-taught glassmaker since 2004.

I was born and raised in the Copenhagen area, moved to Lolland very young. Where I work as a lifeguard and waiter for many years.

Has been trained as a social and health assistant and has worked in psychiatry for several years.

I moved to Bornholm in 2002.

Have been creative all my life with fabric Santa Claus, steel braid, flower decorations both fresh and dried.

The glass I got started with when I got a ceramic oven serving that had not been used for approx. 20 years "originally from Bornholm University"

I started with experiments in window glass that was painted on and white ceramics that were decorated with luster and gold decorations.

The glass comes from america and italy and is full-color glass plates that are fused together and formed into, for example, bowls, dishes, candlesticks, lamps, vases and figures.

The technique:

Clear transparent glass plate of the desired size as a foundation, on top of which are added colored glasses that are cut into the desired pattern. The glass is sanded, washed free of dust, grease and glass sludge. Put in the glass oven and fuse together. Second firing, the fused glass plate is placed on top of a ceramic or stainless steel mold and drops (slumping / bending) heat influence / gravity into the mold or beyond the mold.

Beads:

Glass bars are melted in a combination of gas and oxygen flame until it is liquid and turned on mandrel garnish and relaxed in bead oven.
