Charlie Shoulders has been a glass artist since 2004 working in Michigan. He has won a number of awards for his work and has benefited over the years through training across the country with several glass masters. He specializes in borosilicate flamework, using a large bench torch and an oxygen and propane fuel mix to melt glass, and simple hand tools to sculpt and shape. Borosilicate glass offers a wonderful palette with many organic colors that strike in the atmosphere of the torch to produce gorgeous blends and ranges of color with great depth.
Working with cremains and making special memorials for loved ones who are left behind is very meaningful for him. He deeply appreciates a glass object, made in a form designed to capture precious memories, can go wherever you go, bringing comfort as well as beauty.
