Jannine Scott – J9 Glass
Jannine Scott is a Colorado artist who specializes in manipulating molten glass with the use of a blowtorch. This technique is called, “Lampworking.” She works the glass in the air, in temperatures melting the glass at over more than 1700 degrees. Jannine specializes in a technique called Murrine cane pulling, as well as complex lattichino (twisted cane) work. Jannine specializes in a technique called the“hot strip method,” where each line is applied while hot, to create a cross section that is then stretched and cut to make “chips” of the image created inside the cross section. This process is incredibly time consuming and not only complex in concept but also in execution. She works this technique in both borosilicate and Effetre glass. If you see a small bee, ladybug, a cloud puking rainbows, or even the j9 signature, it is this technique that is being created to make those details happen.SEE THEIR STORE >
