Roberta and Bill Manly

Virtual Booth

Roberta and Bill Manly make handcrafted jewelry with flameworked and fused glass, enamel, silver, copper, and semi-precious stones. Flameworked glass is a medium increasingly appearing in their work. They value the gorgeous color palate of opaque, transparent and reactive glass available today, as well as its decorative and sculptural possibilities. The avenues of self-expression possible melting glass at the torch, or in a kiln, and combining it with the malleable properties of metal, are seemingly endless. The Manlys also have some fun with bottle glass, and appreciate its eco-friendly aspects and simple beauty.
