About the Instructor(s)

Nikolai Morse

Nikolai switched to borosilicate torchworking in 2015 after ten years of working with soft glass. After grad school in soft glass sculpting Niko started Taffy Tubes where he produced boro color tubing for other artists. The technical chasm between 33 and 96 coe glasses has provided a fertile ground for exploration.
