  Lampworked Borosilicate Glass Art Wholesale Information & Catalog  

Shiloh Hunkapiller is a borosilicate glass artist who uses lampworking techniques (the manipulation and blowing of glass with the use of a torch) to create glass art ranging from marbles to vessels. His artwork is simple in color and form, yet elegant. He uses only the finest borosilicate glass and kiln anneals all finished pieces to remove stress within the glass.

Shiloh began his artistic career as a woodworker specializing in the building of bamboo fly rods. Over time, he acquired a great appreciation for and interest in glass art. Therefore, when he had the opportunity to learn glass blowing from fellow lampworkers he took advantage of it. Shiloh studied the art for approximately two years. Finding that glass blowing came naturally, he chose to pursue it full-time. His prior experience building bamboo fly rods has helped him while lampworking — both require patience and close attention to detail and accuracy. Over the past fifteen years, Shiloh has taken the knowledge taught to him and developed his own unique techniques and style. He is continuously experimenting and pushing both the glass and himself.
