Below are 5 of my most recent tops. Each is different and completely hand made. No machinery is used in the making of these with regards to alignment(a lathe). They are all made and balanced by hand in the flame. Keep in mind I use a lot of fume(smoked Gold and Silver) in my work which will appear brighter/darker on a dark background and please keep in mind they are photographed under direct lighting. If you have any questions feel free to email me via the contact page or at rtglassworks@comcast.net. Thanks so much everyone! :)
