Exquisite Blown Glass by Firemajic (1 Viewer)

Hey everyone,

I happen to be the happy owner of 2 incredible pieces of Firemagic's blown glass pieces and I just had to share them with you!! They are so amazing. Pictures don't do them justice but better than nothing:

This one is going to look so good in our Asheville house (if it EVER gets done):

And this one will stay here in Atlanta:

That look really cool. If someone would to start blowing glass, how good would it take to be able to make something like this? How did you get into something like this?

IMan... Thank you... glass is my passion..

Greimour... Lol... When I first started playing with fire.. I made a lot of "snails" ..

Raleigh... I am not going to lie... Glass Art takes a lot of discipline... BUT.. I have never had a lesson.. I have been a "Hot Head" for 6 years.. You can watch some really cool youtube videos on glass blowing.. Thanks..

I've often wondered about your work with glass, Jul but I always imagined coloured vases and paper-weights. I never dreamed you were making anything as detailed and artistic as these pieces. They are stunning. You are so clever!

Wow Firemajic, I'm blown away (no pun intended).


I've seen and watched some glassblower's work both in Europe and the States, but their creations were, like Jen mentioned, in the decorative arts realm. Then in 2013 the wife drug me down to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts to see the Chihuly Exhibit "Through the Looking Glass" and I was amazed by the fine arts realm of such work.


From the images TK put up, it looks like your work is on a par :)


And thank you TK.

Those look gorgeous, but I can't help wondering about the size. Nothing in the images to show scale, so... approximate dimensions? (I'm not criticizing the pictures; image quality, background and lighting are superb to my inexperienced eye.)

As has been said by others - WOW!

Those pieces are so exquisitely beautiful they seem unreal.

I would so much love to have such beauty adorning my home.

I just watched a few videos about glass blowing, and that stuff is really cool. My jaw was dropped halfway through the video, it's really cool.
