Less demanding than glass-blowing and more reliable than glass-throwing, flameworking is an accessible stepping stone into the world of glass art. In a two-hour, scheduled-on-demand workshop, students learn to manipulate and colorize molten glass on the torch and craft a vibrant bead or small piece jewelry with the help of an expert.

Fiamma Art Glass

Native Bostonians and Mass Art graduates Caterina Urrata and David Weintraub share a passion for the sinuous geometries of glass. They've shaped that passion under some of the top blowers and lampworkers in the field. Their preferred aesthetic emphasizes intricate form, in stemware and vessels that incorporate the delicate curve of a seahorse's back or mischievously twisting horns over a devilish visage. Sculptures range from eerily suspended bowls held up by their frozen contents to monolithic forms bearing tribalesque patterns. And Weintraub's vetrographs are, if possible, even more inimitable: he devised the process himself, flashing light through carefully constructed glass forms onto photo paper to create images that evoke primitive life forms growing in caves or under subway seats.

The couple practice their delicate craft in a studio-cum-gallery in Newton Upper Falls. Besides providing an eyeful for any glass-loving gawker, they occasionally also offer introductory classes to the multifaceted art.

    “We thoroughly enjoyed our class at Fiamma Art Glass. We participated in a two-hour introductory flame working class. Trina was our instructor. Besides being very skilled at her craft, she was a great teacher. She took the time to give some history and science behind sculpting glass. Visuals were provided as well as hands-on demonstration. She and her assistant were readily available to help as we progressed to trying our hand at making two projects. Trina's enthusiasm and love of her craft made this a very memorable event for us. We would like to try another class soon.”
