Precious Metal Fuming
PMF is a Lampworking technique, where high quality precious metals are introduced into the torch flame. The metals are brought up to a temperature that will start to vaporize them and they become “fume”. This fume is then trapped in and/or coated on a clear optic of borosilicate glass. Producing very desirable colors that are not only stunning but also Color Changing in different lighting; due to the reflective qualities in the metals and glass.
Because of glass’s reflective property the piece’s color may appear differently, depending on: the colors of what is around you, the lighting (florescent, incandescent, sunlight, slow light. Etc )
All photos of product here at FlameInHandPipes are shot in seasonal natural sun light (whether direct sunlight or indirect sunlight)
– In this particular piece, the fume is then manipulated into a pattern then Imploded through a gather of clear glass ( creating a upwards “blooming” effect) then is finished with a domed optic which will not only magnify the spectacular blooming pattern but also will make it look three-dimensional as though it really is a succulent plant frozen in time and miniature space.
