Jaci Sinkewicz is a self-taught glass artist, and graphic design hobbyist. She has been Lampworking since she was about 14 years old, and continues to love every minute on the torch. Recently she has started to create unique vinyl decal art for a wide range of applications indoors and out.
Her jewelry always is a tribute to the glass itself. It showcases and highlights the natural beauty of what was created in the flame. She creates small trinkets not limited to hand blown Lampwork Glass and jewelry, metal and leather. She also dabbles in mixed media art, abstract paintings and hipster chic accessories.
Her passion for glass began when she was on vacation on a tiny island in the Caribbean called Saba. There was a Glass Blower there named Jobean Chambers who had a little shop, and a torch set up blowing glass beads from long rods of glass. She had an apprentice who made tiny glass flying pigs... She spent hours of days watching until one day Jobean asked her if she wanted to try her hand at it. She was instantly hooked, and had made 2 small blue beads.
Years later she is still at it, creating whatever inspires her when the torch is lit. She draws inspiration from many places. Nature, fashion, unusual surroundings, and many times just listening to the glass, working with a molten flow of creativity.

What is Glassblowing?
The art of Glassblowing has two major areas of study. Furnace work, and Lampwork. Lampwork is a form of Glassblowing done on a torch, usually melting down rods of glass into sculpture, pendants & functional pieces with or without blowing air into the structure. It can also be wound onto a metal mandrel piece, hollow or solid to make beads, and other items. Furnace work is more commonly though of when speaking of glassblowing, and utilizes large metal pipes to pick up molton glass from a melting pot, and is worked into various forms with or without blowing air into the structure.
