So today I thought I'd post a picture of my lampworking area - for fun. As you can see, it is pretty messy. I usually keep the glass rods that I am currently using, right in front of me on my work bench. This isn't always the best thing to do, occasionally a piece of hot glass will pop off a glass rod that I'm using and "stick" on a cold rod sitting in front of me.
My torch is a Nortel Minor Burner, as you can see in the picture. I use propane and an oxygen concentrator for fuel. There are many different types of torches and a few different types of fuels. Next week I'll blog about some torches available for lampworkers.
I also like to use frit (ground up chunks of glass) and I keep it close to me on my bench. I don't have a graphite torch marver
