Twisted Flame Glassworks artist feature and giveaway!!





i always enjoy featuring and helping to promote new artists on my blog. 
Alan Jeskewitz, is a  borosilicate glass artist out of Chicago area. His etsy shop features many lovely glass pendants at really great prices and all pieces include free shipping!  


A bit about Alan.  

"Working as a technician at a large telecommunications company, in Chicago, I have always looked for a creative outlet to escape. I have worked with wood, clay, paint, metal but nothing would hold my interest until I met glass.  Being an avid fisherman I decided to combine glass and fishing. Designing and producing a line of lures was fun but took a turn down a path I decided not to go down. Moving to a more art rather than function approach to glass has been an amazing learning experience. Buying every book and video I could find and watching every You Tube video made about glass, In three years I have been able to learn a lot but still feel I haven't scratched the surface on what flame working has to offer."


 " I'm finally at a point I feel I have learned enough to start to sell my work, I have opened an Etsy store and began to get my work and name out there. I have a lot more to learn and as I do my art will change as I grow with this amazing creative outlet."

You can view more of Alan work in his Etsy Shop Twisted Flame Glassworks.  If you are looking for a certain shape or color pendant, you can contact Alan directly about custom orders through etsy. 

You can also connect with Alan on facebook at Twisted Flame Glassworks



All of his pendants are made with borosilicate glass on a torch and annealed in a computerized kiln to remove any stresses to the glass. The annealing process ensures that your pendant is strong and durable enough to last a lifetime.


  
. The lamp worked flower pendants are all one of a kind and each one is signed and dated by the artist.  This one has an encased cubic zirconium, so lovely!   Most of the pendants in his etsy shop are priced between $10-$50,  very affordable for a piece of hand made art! 


Alan has generously offered this beautiful glass pendants to a lucky reader!  The pendant measures 26mm and is 12mm thick. It has a cubic ziconium encased in the center, and a steel loop. This piece would look stunning on a simple cord necklace, or incorporated into your own beadwork.

  5. Wow, Allen, as a glass artist who has not gotten nearly so far with her work in over 10 years -- your work is BEAUTIFUL! I love the heart shown on this page but I'm partial to the flower pendent with that glittery cz - I love the glitter of the glass and stone!

  6. Beautiful glass work! I, too look for a creative outlet from the grueling corporate work-world. I like that you say you finally feel like you've learned enough to sell your work. I'm working towards that with my mixed media paintings as we speak.

    I'll check out your blog often!
